Mac DeMarco has shared new cut 'On The Level' - tune in now.

The songwriter recently announced plans for new album 'This Old Dog', set to drop on May 5th.

New cut 'On The Level' is taken from the record, and it's a curious about-turn for a songwriter so often associated with woozy, disorienting guitar licks.

Draped in synthetic sound, the slo-mo tempo evolves at a glacial pace, but there's also an assured feeling to the sound.

“This record has a lot to do with my family and my life right now and the way I’m feeling,” he says. “One of the main goals for this record was trying to make sure I retained some kind of realness. That’s the bottom line.”

Check it out now.
