Dan Deacon | 07/02/13

Dan Deacon teams up with Director/Editor Dave Hughes (Off The Air/Adult Swim) to create a 22 minute music video odyssey that takes viewers on a skewed trip through the American landscape and beyond - watch it below or here. The music is the four-part "USA" suite off Deacon's latest album America, and the visuals were culled from artists all over the world.

Deacon has been keeping busy as well. As part of their Kronos at 40 Festival taking place at Lincoln Plaza this summer, Kronos Quartet will perform new four commissioned pieces, including one by Deacon on July 28 at Lincoln Center -- the performance will also incorporate the use of the Dan Deacon smartphone app. More info here

He has also announced new dates including a free show August 2 at Prospect Park as part of the Celebrate Brooklyn series and added to the lineup of the Atlantic Ocean Comedy & Music Festival, a cruise which departs from Miami Sept 13.
