A few weeks back Mac Demarco dropped two tracks that will feature on a brand new album, due out this May. This Old Dog and My Old Man saw Maccy D taking it down a notch, with both tracks stripped down to just vocals, acoustic guitar with a few minor embellishments.
Like dogs? Watch Mac Demarco play a stripped down version of This Old Dog in a dog grooming parlour while two dogs get haircuts.
Mac recently set up in a dog grooming parlour to perform a bare rendition of This Old Dog for Crack Magazine. “On my left, I’ve got Tilly, on my right, Foxton,” he says, introducing the two degs getting a trim alongside him.
Before launching into a lovely rendition of the track he jokes, “Though I may not be speaking about a real dog, this is what my press will probably look like for the next 2 years.”
Sounds pretty good to us.
Watch Mac, Tilly and Foxton do their thing below. Thanks to Crack for making this happen.
This Old Dog is out May 5th on Captured Tracks.
