Those keeping a close eye on the artist may have suspected a local tour was on the way. He had already confirmed a date at Wanderer Festival in New South Wales and had plenty of room on his schedule for a longer stayover.

On May 26, he’s set to drop a new album More Photographs (A Continuum) which will serve as an accompaniment to his acclaimed 2022 release. Featuring three reimagined tracks and six new songs, the upcoming album follows the path of its predecessor, touching on similar themes of life, loss and passing time and exploring them even further.

“If This Is a Photograph is a house that you have been living inside of,” says Morby, “then More Photographs is, perhaps, the same home just experienced differently. As if you, its inhabitant, have taken a tab of something psychedelic, and now, suddenly, you’ve replaced your eyeglasses with kaleidoscopes.”

The former The Babies and Woods member has sharpened his songwriting skills over the course of his seven studio albums. A powerful voice in the modern folk rock and indie scene, he’s sure to deliver an unforgettable show when he makes his way to Australia.

Tickets to see Kevin Morby on his Australian tour this September and October are set to go on sale on May 11 at 10am local time. Presale will begin on May 10.
