Preview :: Danny Johnston - Is and Always Was

Daniel Johnston is an oddity and an art. The sheer power of his lyrics alone got him through a decade of obscurity. That and a t-shirt worn by Kurt Cobain. His albums take the form of sing-spoken tape recorded fuzz fests and it's become his niche.

Johnston will release his first album of original material since 2003 on October 6th. And the album will be, strangely enough, a cross-breeding affair with high-fidelity. It shall be named Is and Always Was.

What? Is this a Daniel Johnston that one could actually dance/listen to? Never fear die hard fans.
This is DANIEL JOHNSTON. He looks like this:

I think he is and always will be who he is.
