Rhett Miller has an album on the way, his first in four years. The Misfit is due September 16 via ATO (pre-order), and its lead single "Follow You Home" is out now. The album was cowritten and produced by Rhett's Hudson Valley, NY, neighbor and previous collaborator Sam Cohen (who's also worked with Kevin Morby, Sharon Van Etten, Danger Mouse, and more). "Follow You Home" is a gently rocking meditation on the idea of belonging, and features backing vocals from Cassandra Jenkins and Annie Nero. Rhett says:
I never thought I’d live out in the country north of New York City, or that I’d be one of only a handful of middle-class musicians who are able to make a good living. ‘Follow You Home’ came from wrestling with the idea of home as a place I never would’ve pictured—and yet I can’t imagine having wound up anywhere else.
