Related: Brett Dennen Wild Child

Singer/Songwriter Brett Dennen has unveiled the outdoors-y new video for hit single "Wild Child" from his forthcoming record Smoke and Mirrors (F-Stop/Atlantic), due out October 22. Entertainment Weekly premiered the video yesterday, declaring it "eminently soundtrack-friendly folk." The song is also on track to break into the Top 10 at Triple A radio this week, with no signs of slowing down.

Dennen will embark on an intimate headline tour this Fall. The 4-week nationwide trek kicks off October 25 at Austin's Central Presbyterian Church and will make stops at Los Angeles' Troubadour, Boulder's Fox Theatre and San Francisco's Independent, to name a few. Tickets are on sale now. Prior to the tour, Dennen will perform at Way Over Yonder Fest in Santa Monica on October 5.

Set for release on October 22, Smoke and Mirrors (F-Stop/Atlantic) is a return to form for Dennen, taking him back to his roots both sonically and aesthetically, yet with more confidence and maturity than ever before. Nowhere is this more evident than the album's first single "Wild Child," which Rolling Stone premiered earlier this month here. Smoke and Mirrors is also available for pre-order on iTunes.

After the overwhelming success of his last release, Loverboy, and the intense promotional tour that followed, Dennen retreated to his mountain house in Northern California and began writing Smoke and Mirrors, finding inspiration in his surroundings and the simplicity of nature. Dennen took the songs to Nashville to record with producer Charlie Peacock (The Civil Wars), eschewing his L.A. comfort zone to work with virtual strangers. Peacock explains,"Brett and I spent a lot of time just building out the arrangements. From the production side, he encouraged me to make every song uniquely its own while keeping it cohesive - and I think we did it. His wonderful music aside, Brett is certainly one of the most whimsical people I've ever produced - a true original." The resulting 10-song set features Dennen's strongest and most cohesive collection to date.
