Built To Spill: Life In Vain

  • Posted on
  • 3.3.20


Lo-fi rock veterans, Built To Spill, pay tribute to another indie music legend, the great Daniel Johnston, through an album comprised of eleven of the prolific artist's songs. Built To Spill Plays The Songs of Daniel Johnston releases May 1st, 2020 through Ernest Jenning Record Co.

The album was recorded by the trio of Doug Martsch, Jason Albertini and Steve Gere in August 2018 during rehearsals for Built To Spill's performances in support of Daniel Johnston. Life in Vain, originally on Johnston's 1994 album, Fun, gets a very much lively and warm treatment by the band in a rendition that honors the late songwriter's artistic quirks and idiosyncrasy.

Built To Spill will be heading out on a very heavy US touring schedule from March to August 2020.
