Daniel Johnston: New Album


Space Ducks: Soundtrack, Daniel Johnston's first studio album in 3 years, was born out of a lifelong dream – to make a comic book. Daniel's vision came to fruition and his first ever comic book, Space Ducks: An Infinite Comic Book of Musical Greatness, was unveiled at Austin’s SXSW in March. The comic book was enhanced by a free interactive iPad app which also included a sneak peek of some of the songs from the Space Ducks: Soundtrack.

Space Ducks: Soundtrack, Daniel's 18th studio album, is out now. It is a two part recording comprised of 7 new Daniel-penned songs including the title track "Space Ducks Theme Song," "Mask" and tongue-in-cheek "Mean Girls Give Pleasure" plus 5 new Space Ducks inspired songs written by Deer Tick, Unknown Mortal Orchestra, Eleanor Friedberger, Fruit Bats and Lavender Diamond. The album was produced by Adrian Quesada (of Grammy winning group Grupo Fantasma). A vinyl and CD version with bonus tracks will be released this Summer.

The Space Ducks:Soundtrack is available at most digital music retailers. Space Ducks: An Infinite Comic Book of Musical Greatness comic is available at comic book shops worldwide, on the Space Ducks app and at hihowareyou.com. The app can be downloaded for free in the iTunes Store.

The album is currently streaming in full over at Soundcloud. Click here to listen.
