Porches, aka Aaron Maine, has announced the arrival of his new record Ricky Music today alongside a new single and video called “Do U Wanna.” The record will be out on March 13th via Domino and it’s Porches’ own journey in finding clarity while juggling the dark bits of life. “Do U Wanna” features the singer in a therapy session, which takes a surreal trajectory:

On his new album, he shared:

“My new album, Ricky Music, was written and recorded between Dec 2017 and the spring of 2019.  Mostly in New York at my apartment, but some of it in Chicago, Los Angeles, and various cities while touring around Europe. This record is an account of the beauty, confusion, anger, joy and sadness I experienced during that time. I think I was as lost as I was madly in love.  In these songs I hear myself sometimes desperate for clarity, and other times, having enough perspective to laugh at myself in some of my darkest moments.  That’s sort of what this album is about, I hope you enjoy it.”
