Tim Fite Premieres New Song "Joyriding" and Announces Tour Dates

The inimitable artist Tim Fite is currently premiering a brand new song from his upcoming album Ain't Ain't Ain't out March 6th via ANTI- Records. The track is entitled "Joyriding" and vividly evokes the budding freedom and romantic adventure of youth. While Fite's previous works addressed distinctly adult issues with a youthful exuberance, Ain't Ain't Ain't is, in many ways, their thematic opposite. The central focus of the new record is the pain, hope and unbridled passion of one's teenage years.

To hear Tim Fite's song "Joyriding," go to Soundcloud.

Fite will also be performing a select series of live dates in support of Ain't Ain't Ain't. A supremely charismatic live performer, Fite utilizes an imaginative multi media stage show that merges music, illustration, video, and light carpentry. In the past he has shared stages with the likes of Man-Man, Les Claypool, Azure Ray, Porter Wagoner, St. Vincent, Fleet Foxes and more.

"I would love to have a real band for my stage show, but band mates eat a lot of food, trash hotel rooms, and get people pregnant, " Fite explains. "So in the interest of caution, I have opted for the safety of technological solitude. In the glow of the projector and the laptop, 'the band' becomes both infinite and non-existent, and the audience finds themselves not at a rock show, but rather, in one."
