On June 16, Trevor Sensor will release his debut album Andy Warhol's Dream via Jagjaguwar. The album was recorded at Steve Albini's Electrical Audio studio in Chicago, IL and was produced by Richard Swift (The Shins, Damien Jurado), Foxygen's Jonathan Rado and Brandon Darner (Imagine Dragons, The Envy Corps).
Sensor shares "Andy Warhol's Dream," the title track from his forthcoming debut.
"The song acts as a centerpiece for the album, but only as a mirror - reflecting and highlighting what has already been said and will be said," explains Sensor. "It encaptures the dream that's bred into us - the dream that feeds off the weaker parts of our humanity. This mirror shows us who we are - our sober, naked selves. The world has become silver and chrome. Everyone is plastic, everything is broken and everybody wants to dream."
The album is now available for pre-order and includes instant downloads of "High Beams" and "The Money Gets Bigger." Fans who pre-order the Andy Warhol's Dream Deluxe Bundle will receive the album on a limited edition metallic silver LP, the Starved Nights of Saturday Stars EP on LP, Texas Girls and Jesus Christ EP download, Andy Warhol's Dream on CD in 6-panel wallet and a digital download code for the album.
The album’s title refers to Warhol’s prophecy of a world in thrall to twin false idols of fame and celebrity. "His '15 minutes of fame' prediction is clearly visible today," Sensor explains. "I’m only really referencing Warhol as a vehicle for the ultimate representation of celebrity culture because of his repeated Marilyn Monroe or Elvis paintings or whatever. But now we’re in a post-God society that is finding new golden calves to worship, that is moving beyond that."
Trevor Sensor has just wrapped up a tour The Family Crest and will hit the road with Mt. Joy this summer. Find a full list of tour dates below, with additional dates to be announced in the coming months.
