Cass McCombs Shares "Estrella," Announces Additional 2019 Tour Dates

Cass McCombs has shared “Estrella,” the second single off his forthcoming album Tip of the Sphere, out Feb. 8, 2019, through ANTI-.

“Estrella” follows lead single “Sleeping Volcanoes,” and shares that song’s sense of a quiet, nimble doom encroaching. “Like pulling down the sea / like plunging into the stars,” McCombs sings, sounding like a stoned soothsayer as he slips in and out of various dialects and tongues. The song was apparently written as a tribute to Latino artist Juan Gabriel, who passed away in 2016.

McCombs has also announced additional dates on his 2019 headlining tour. Those dates, along with a live performance of both “Sleeping Volcanoes” and “Estrella” at La Blogotheque’s Take Away Show, can be found further down. Tickets will go on sale Thursday, Dec. 13, at noon local time, and can be purchased here.

Listen to “Estrella” below, along with McCombs’ 2011 Daytrotter Session and his live performances for La Blogotheque.
