Releasing: 12 January
Owen Pallett's first album since He Poos Clouds in 2006 is a concept album about a farmer named Lewis, who, if you'll notice the track list, takes off his shirt at some point. Pallett has been jumping around the world to record Heartland, spending time in Reykjavik to lay down some tracks and Prague to record the Czech Symphony. He still has a couple dates left on his U.S. tour with the Mountain Goats (dates after the jump), and recently stopped by IFC's Dinner With the Band to perform "Keep the Dog Quiet" and eat some lamb.
