The album features contributions from Father John Misty, Lucius, Lana Del Rey, and New Age music legend Laraaji. The lead single off the album is "Over the Midnight." Wilson has said of the song: “I wanted to write a song about a sacred place for lovers to exist and I named that destination, process, mood or feeling  ‘Over the Midnight’. It’s a place where nothing is savage.” Before releasing Rare Birds, Wilson spent 2017 producing Father John Misty‘s Grammy nominated Pure Comedy and touring arenas around the globe as a guitarist and vocalist for Pink Floyd legend Roger Waters, for whom he also contributed to the also Grammy nominated Is This The Life We Really Want? album. Rare Birdsis out now on Bella Union. - Jasmine Albertson
