The EP is scheduled for release on February 18, 2022 through Dead Oceans in partnership with Columbia Records and Night Time Stories Ltd. It serves as a continuation of Khrungbin and Leon Bridges’ 2020 EP, ‘Texas Sun’.

“Without happiness, there can be no real outlook on sadness,” Khruangbin said of ‘Texas Moon’ via a press release. “Without the sun, all this rain stops things from growing. How can there be the Sun without the Moon?

The EP’s announcement coincided with the release of its first single, the ‘B-side’, and a music video. The video, directed by Philip Andelman, sees Khrungbin and Bridges putting their unique spin on the spaghetti western genre, facing off against each other before finally coming together to perform as a unit.

‘Texas Moon’ will also feature three other tracks – ‘Chocolate Hills’, ‘Father Father’, ‘Mariella’ and ‘Doris’. According to the press release, ‘Doris’ tells the story of Bridges’ grandmother’s passing and her journey to various regions.

“It’s like a short story,” Khruangbin’s Laura Lee said of Texas Moon. “And it leaves room for these stories to continue together. It’s not Khruangbin, it’s not Leon, it’s this world we built together.”

Khruangbin and Leon Bridges teamed up for the first time to release “Texas Sun” in February last year. Four months later, Khruangbin released his third studio album, Mordechai. The record received a great five-star review from Granthshala, praising the band as “expanding their horizons while rooting their latest project in a sound they’ve made their own”.
