Tim Heidecker Announces A New Album With Contributions From Kurt Vile, Mac DeMarco, And More

While music has long been a part of the Tim And Eric formula, Tim Heidecker has been taking non-comedic music more seriously in recent years. In 2020, he dropped his well-received album Fear Of Death and now he’s getting ready to share another: Today, he announced High School is set for release on June 24.

Heidecker produced the album with Mac DeMarco, Eric D. Johnson (best-known for being a member of Fruit Bats, The Shins, and Bonny Light Horseman), and Drew Erickson (who just this year has worked with Lana Del Rey, Father John Misty, and Florence And The Machine). Also involved with the project is Kurt Vile, who features on a song called “Sirens Of Titan.”

This comes after Heidecker also had an impressive lineup of indie collaborators on Fear Of Death, which featured contributions from Weyes Blood, Stella Mozgawa 0f Warpaint, Brian and Michael D’Addario of The Lemon Twigs, and Jonathan Rado of Foxygen, as well as audio engineering from Sarah Tudzin of Illuminati Hotties.

Heidecker also announced a new tour, which will consist of both musical performances (alongside the Very Good Band) and stand-up comedy.
