Kristin Hersh will release a new album and book, Wyatt at the Coyote Palace. The double CD and hardcover book is out October 28 in the UK/Australia and November 11 in the U.S. via Omnibus Press. It’s the third book/album release following Hersh’s 2010 release Crooked and Throwing Muses’ 2013 release Purgatory/Paradise. She’s written a series of books, including last year’s Don’t Suck, Don’t Die: Giving Up Vic Chesnutt. Check out the covers of both the album and the book below.
According to a press release, the title is a very literal reference. Hersh’s prose was inspired by her autistic son Wyatt and “his fascination with an abandoned apartment building inhabited by coyotes.” Wyatt would visit and film the coyotes while Hersh recorded the album, but “suddenly his intense fascination came to an end.” Hersh said in a statement:
“I had so loved his love of the place. Throwing Muses’ drummer, Dave [Narcizo]—my best friend since third grade—decided that Wyatt needed to encapsulate his sense memories of the coyote palace, make the experience finite, like bottling a memory. Dave thinks we’ll see it again, and Wyatt’s love of the place will come back, when the images have been filtered through Wyatt’s intense and fascinating psychology.”
