Hovvdy Reveals New Album & Tour Dates, Drops “Forever” Song Video

Austin, Texas, has given us yet another reason to keep an eye on its vibrant music scene. The indie-pop duo Hovvdy just spilled the beans about their self-titled album, dropping on April 26 via Arts & Crafts. And guess what? They’ve also let slip their lead single for us to devour.

Now, about that single, “Forever” – it’s out and comes with a music video that’s just as captivating. Directed by Michael Rees, the video captures the essence of their love song at a house party. It’s like watching a heart take flight amidst the chaos of red cups and tangled conversations.

The duo, comprising Charlie Martin and Will Taylor, isn’t new to the game. “Hovvdy” marks their fifth full-length album, following the footsteps of 2021’s “True Love” and the 2022 EP “Billboard for My Feelings”. Martin shared some insights, revealing the LP dives deep into the realms of tested relationships and familial ties. It’s all about looking back, understanding struggles, and embracing empathy. Meanwhile, Taylor explores the new terrains of parenthood, adding another layer to their storytelling.

But wait, there’s more. Hovvdy’s not just dropping music; they’re hitting the road too. This spring, Europe’s in for a treat with a handful of new tour dates. Before that adventure, they’re warming up with Cold War Kids across North America. From this week until mid-February, they’re everywhere. Literally.

Here’s a peek at their tour schedule. It kicks off in San Francisco, CA, at the Fillmore, then weaves through Portland, Vancouver, and Seattle. They’ll grace stages in Boise, Bozeman, and even Aspen before wrapping up the North American leg in Austin, TX. Then, it’s off to Europe, with stops in Glasgow, Leeds, Manchester, and more. It’s a packed itinerary, but hey, who’s complaining?

So, there you have it. Hovvdy’s gearing up to make 2023 unforgettable. With new tunes, a fresh album, and a tour that spans continents, they’re on a mission. And if you ask me, it’s one heck of a ride we shouldn’t miss.
