Bill Callahan has released new track "Coyotes" as the first taster of his forthcoming album YTI⅃AƎЯ.

"Coyotes" is the first preview of Callahan's new album, which was announced as the follow-up to 2020's Gold Record last month.

He says of the song, ""Coyotes" -- We lived for awhile in a house in the hills. Coyote hills. The coyotes would start their song at dawn. Dawn and dusk were their main appearance times. Our dog would sleep outside sometimes in the morning and our boy was still bite-size. The coyotes would come take notes, edging closer each day. Mornings on the kingsize outdoor daybed. Like a righteous floating tide the coyotes would drift into our world. Predator and prey, blurred. Past and present, blurred. The young, the aged are to be snatched and devoured. Past lives edge in closer to try to speak to us. Current lives eye the past ones like sleeping dogs. And love spans all, that is why the feeling is so deep -- deeper than one lifetime."

YTI⅃AƎЯ will feature Matt Kinsey on guitar, Emmett Kelly on bass/backing vocals, Sarah Ann Phillips on piano/backing vocals, and Jim White on drums.

"Coyotes" is out now. Bill Callahan's YTI⅃AƎЯ album will be released via Drag City on 14 October, and is available to pre-order now. The vinyl edition will follow in 2023. He'll play London's Roundhouse on 2 November. Find out more.
