Mike Gordon Announces New Album ‘Flying Games’ Out May 12
Lead Track “Tilting” Out Now – Watch The Official Video
US Tour Kicks off June 15 in Portland, ME
Mike Gordon has announced his new solo album, Flying Games, arriving via ATO/Megaplum on Friday, May 12. Produced by Gordon, recorded by longtime collaborator Jared Slomoff, and mixed by GRAMMY® Award-winning engineer Shawn Everett (Alabama Shakes, The War on Drugs), Flying Games is heralded by today’s premiere of the high velocity new single, “Tilting,” available now at all DSPs and streaming services. An official animated video premieres today via YouTube.
“For me ‘Tilting’ is about being in a situation or a relationship where you don’t know if your footing is solid,” says Mike Gordon, “but then accepting that and realizing you enjoy the feeling of disorientation. Whether it’s playing music or driving or experiencing something new, I’ve always felt more present when I don’t know where I’m going next.”
The bassist and co-founder of the seminal improvisational American rock band Phish, Gordon will celebrate Flying Games with a wide-ranging live run that includes both headline shows and top-billed festival performances. Dates get underway June 15 at Portland, ME’s State Theatre and then culminating with a home state tour finale at Burlington, VT’s Higher Ground Ballroom on July 2. Tickets for all newly announced headline dates go on sale Friday, March 17. For complete details and ticket information, please visit mike-gordon.com/tour.
