Product Description

It took 15 years for Cotton Mather to return with 2016 s Death of The Cool released July 19th, 2016, the first collection of songs compiled from band leader Robert Harrison s ambitious, possibly impossible aim to write 64 songs, one for each hexagram of the I Ching, the ancient text which he refers to as an extraordinary book about ordinary life.


Now, in what seems like the passing of just 15 minutes, Cotton Mather will release Wild Kingdom on April 7th, 2017. The album brings together another 11 tracks, following up the 11-song Death of The Cool, and the three-track Cotton Mather with Nicole Atkins EPreleased December 30th, 2016, that are both also a part of the I Ching song cycle.


To date, 30 of the Songs From The I Ching have been released.


Wild Kingdom is more a change of season than scenery, Harrison states. While I was writing the first half of the I Ching project, I tended to circle the songs with a requisite richness and gravity because I thought it important to do something for the first release in fifteen years that we never could have done before. Otherwise, what s the point Relatively obscure indie cult band reunites to demonstrate that maybe going away the first time was just a fine idea? Uh, no thank you. You have to get better!


Cotton Mather fans at SXSW 2017 can judge for themselves ahead of the album s April 7th national release date. Wild Kingdom will be available exclusively through adored Austin record store Waterloo Records for one month prior to the rest of the world, coinciding with SXSW and Cotton Mather s performance supporting Spoon on March 15th as part of that band s three-night festival residency.


Kontiki gave me something to shoot for, Spoon leader Britt Daniel once said of Cotton Mather s 1997 underground classic album. In addition to praise from musicians, the record was especially loved by the UK press, with both Uncut and The Guardian awarding it five-star ratings. Like the instantly memorable pop songs that made and make Kontiki influential a two-disc reissue released in 2012 received similar praise all over again, and Kontiki was also finally released on vinyl at the end of 2016 Wild Kingdom continues in the Robert Harrison tradition of impeccable song craft that doesn t ever let up on the hooks, or the winking.


Many successful bands are fairly monochromatic, which strikes me as both difficult and uninteresting, Harrison explains. My aim has always been to escape. To change the scenery behind the singer.


But the problem always remains, Harrison continues. It s always just me.


Wild Kingdom, the latest album by Cotton Mather, arrives on April 7th, 2017 containing 11 tracks comprising another portion of the 64-track Songs From The I Ching project that also includes the 11-song Death of The Cool album released July 19th, 2016 and the three-track Cotton Mather with Nicole Atkins EP released December 30th, 2016.
