Actor and musician Caleb Landry Jones will release The Mother Stone, his sprawling and psychedelic debut album, on May 1st via Sacred Bones. Today, he releases its second single, “All I Am in You / The Big Worm.” It follows the “colorful, carnivalesque energy” (Cool Hunting) of lead single “Flag Day / The Mother Stone.” “All I Am in You / The Big Worm” begins with low and muscular vocals, brightening as the instrumentation morphs with vivid synth, brass, percussion, and keys. “The beat was inspired by Dale Hawkins’ ‘Susie-Q,’” says Jones.

The Mother Stone is built from abrupt detours and schizoid shifts of voice. Shaped by the marks left by Jones’ formative encounters with the Beatles’ White Album and Syd Barrett’s solo work, The Mother Stone is a parade led by multiple unreliable narrators who rail against the universe, profess their love and vacate the stage before we can ask them a question.
