Baltimore electronic musician Dan Deacon already has a lot planned for 2020, with a new album on the way and plenty of chances to see him live.

After spending some time in Europe, Deacon will kick off an extensive US tour in late February and will stay on the road through early May, with stops in Atlanta (Tickets), Englewood (Tickets), Philadelphia (Tickets) and Brooklyn (Tickets). Tickets are on sale now. Deacon is also already in the middle of a small tour that will wrap up in mid-November.

Deacon has spent a lot of time lately contributing to soundtracks, but his new album, Mystic Familiar, is out Jan. 31. It will be his first full-length solo release since 2015's Glass Riffer. He has said the album is about "a supernatural other being that we carry with us everywhere in our head, which only we can hear and with whom we live our lives in eternal conversation" and was inspired by "therapeutic practices of self-compassion and mindfulness, daily prompts from Brian Eno’s deck of Oblique Strategies, and the use of meditation."

"I have been working on it for years and I'm really excited for you to hear it soon!" he said across his social media accounts.

Deacon also gave fans a preview of the album with lead single "Sat by a Tree," including a music video that explores themes surrounding death. Mystic Familiar is available for pre-order now, including a version printed on silver vinyl with a poster of the artwork. It will also be available on CD and cassette.
