Jeffrey Lewis has a new album called Manhattan available on Rough Trade Records. It's a collection of tunes that is as self-deprecating, sensitive, and wild as ever. Sonically, the tracks can be disrupted with incredible, somehow tuneful, disorder and chaos, but lyrically, things are sharp, precise, and finely honed.

Ahead of a tour that starts on March 2nd at the Sidewalk in NYC, where Lewis will be playing a set of Lou Reed songs for the Velvet Underground leader's birthday, he has released a new tune and accompanying video.
