Callahan has released "Shepherd's Welcome", "Black Dog on the Beach", "Angela", "The Ballad of the Hulk", "Writing", and "Morning is My Grandmother" as Side 1 of his forthcoming album.

Shepherd in a Sheepskin Vest is Callahan's first record of new material since 2013's Dream River. In 2014 Callahan released Have Fun With God, a dub version of his Dream River release.

The new record will feature 20 tracks, over double the amount of his previous two records.

Shepherd in a Sheepskin Vest will arrive 14 June via Drag City. Bill Callahan will play London's Eventim Apollo on 3 October. Find out more.
