Kevin Morby Releases 7″ Ahead of Tour Dates

Kevin Morby’s single “Gift Horse” is now available for purchase on vinyl b/w “I Was On Time.” The singles were previously only available physically with a preorder of Morby’s album Oh My God, out now via Secretly Canadian. The tracks, now available to stream, comes before the North American dates of his world tour dates which include an 8-piece band and starts tomorrow.

“Gift Horse” was born as Morby was finishing up “O Behold,” the final track from his most recent album.

He said, “I started hammering out a few chords and suddenly was humming a melody and told Sam I thought I was writing a new song and that maybe we should record it instead. An hour later we had ‘Gift Horse,’ lyrics and all, like it had been floating around the studio and we just nabbed it out of the air. We re-cut it with the band a few weeks later, which is what you’re hearing now.”

“I Was On Time” is a song that celebrates being a live performer, Moby said.

He has tour dates that run until the end of July and then has two performances with Nathaniel Rateliff in August.
