Mountain Goats

Songs for Pierre Chuvin


One of the most original takes on the lockdown album, busted out into a multi-format release, further cementing the Mountain Goats status as modern legends.

A surprise cassette released April 2020, 'Songs for Pierre Chuvin' is the Mountain Goats’ first all-boombox album since 2002’s 'All Hail West Texas'. After selling over 4000 cassettes in a matter of minutes, the avid Mountain Goats fanbase has demanded more and we are happy to acquiesce!

+ Limited Indie shop version LP is pressed on pink and white swirl coloured vinyl.

Songs for Pierre Chuvin will be available on CD and LP as well!

Praise for Songs for Pierre Chuvin:
“Recording on the same boombox that launched his career, John Darnielle returns to his lo-fi roots for an album of alienation, ancient pagans, and making it through the year together.” - Pitchfork.
“Full of images fit for these dismal times and slogans suited to surviving them, Pierre Chuvin is an inspiring reminder of how much each of us has left to learn.” -NPR.
“[Songs for Pierre Chuvin] can be used to escape the present emergency—or, if the listener so chooses, to better understand it.” - The Atlantic.
“Songs for Pierre Chuvin is exactly what we’ve come to expect: big-hearted songs full of warmth and smarts, custom-built to comfort and to inspire.”
- Bandcamp.

+ LP includes download code.
