Sub Pop Signs Boeckner: The New Solo Outing From Daniel Boeckner (Wolf Parade, Operators, Divine Fits, Handsome Furs)

Boeckner is Daniel Boeckner, the multi-disciplinary artist, songwriter, musician, producer, and member of several great bands you may know, including Wolf Parade, Operators, Divine Fits, and Handsome Furs. Last night, in an interview with Chris Wade of Chapo Trap House, he announced signing to Sub Pop Records to release music for the label in early 2024 (see interview Wednesday, November 8th).

Boeckner’s last recorded output was Wolf Parade’s Thin Mind, the group’s fifth effort, from February 2020. Since the release of that album, he’s worked as a producer (labelmates Kiwi Jr’s stellar third record, Chopper), as a touring member of the Arcade Fire, and dived further into his work in the podcasting space as a co-host for The Bottlemen and Fortune Kit podcasts. Boeckner has also relocated to New Orleans, where he is currently putting the finishing touches on his full-length Sub Pop debut.

Label cofounder Poneman says of the signing, “Welcoming Dan to the Sub Pop family is always a thrill.”
