Porches, a.k.a. Aaron Maine, is back with a new album, titled Ricky Music and due out March 13 via Domino. 

Featuring contributions from Mitski, Zsela, and Dev Hynes, and with co-production by Jacob Portrait, Ricky Music expands on the Porches discography (The House, 2018; Pool, 2016; Slow Dance In The Cosmos, 2013) by delivering 11 emotionally open, cracked-glass pop songs.

North American tour dates have also been announced, and will be on sale Friday, January 24 at 10 a.m. local. Listed below; tickets available at porchesmusic.com.

About the album, Maine says:
“My new album, Ricky Music, was written and recorded between Dec 2017 and the spring of 2019.  Mostly in New York at my apartment, but some of it in Chicago, Los Angeles, and various cities while touring around Europe. This record is an account of the beauty, confusion, anger, joy and sadness I experienced during that time. I think I was as lost as I was madly in love.  In these songs I hear myself sometimes desperate for clarity, and other times, having enough perspective to laugh at myself in some of my darkest moments.  That’s sort of what this album is about, I hope you enjoy it.”

With the album announcement comes a new song – “Do U Wanna” – and a video for the song directed by prior Porches collaborator Nick Harwood (videos for “Country” and “Goodbye”).

““Do U Wanna” is a song about looking at yourself and realizing the disparity between how you’d like to act and how you actually act.  The fun you vs. the isolated you. I feel like with the refrain I’m almost taunting myself to get up and do something.” – Maine
