For the fourth time this year, Mark Kozelek has announced the impending release of new music. In June, he dropped Universal Themes from his Sun Kil Moon moniker. A month later, he revealed plans for a spoken-word charity album, Dreams of Paradise, as well as a collaborative LP with Jesu. Now, Kozelek fansite Sad Reminders has learned that the singer-songwriter will release a new four track EP, Down in the Willow Garden, under his own name

“Down in the Willow Garden” is a traditional Appalachian murder ballad; presuming the tracks aren’t originals which happen to share the title, two versions of the song will appear on the EP.

Due out October 7th, the EP will be given away free with any purchase from Kozelek’s Caldo Verde Records through the label’s website. Find the tracklist below.

01. Down In The Willow Garden (Version 1)
02. Sick Again
