Jim O'Rourke Returns!
You're looking at the cover art of The Visitor, the first Jim O'Rourke record in over 8 years. The album will be hitting record stores on September 8 via Drag City records. The album consists of a single, 39-minute long instrumental track that is reminiscent of O'Rourke's work on his 1997 release Bad Timing. You might also remember that Bad Timing's cover depicted a painting of a disco ball similar to the one being smashed on the sleeve of this record. Could this indicate a (years late) bookend of sorts to O'Rourke's song-based output? Only time will tell, but for now, I'm just estatic that this is seeing the light of day.
