Led by Dave Alvin (guitar, vocals), The Third Mind features Victor Krummenacher (bass, vocals), David Immerglück (guitar, keyboards, vocals), and Michael Jerome (drums, percussion) with special guests Jesse Sykes (guitar, vocals), DJ Bonebrake (vibes) and Jack Rudy (harmonica).

Recorded “using the Miles Davis technique, there were no rehearsals or written musical arrangements. Just decide on a key, start recording and see what happens,” says Dave Alvin.

The six-song collection includes an original composition, “Claudia Cardinale,” and five covers mixed by Craig Parker Adams at the late great Winslow Ct Studios in Los Angeles. The album features the art of Tony Fitzpatrick with a different cover and collectible poster in both the LP and CD package.  

“I’ve been longing to do an experimental album like The Third Mind and to do a tour with such eclectic musicians like the ones in this group since I first saw Jimi Hendrix in concert when I was 12 years old… This should be some interesting fun.”

Billboard premiered the video for “The Dolphins,” a cover of the Fred Neil original and the only track on the album with vocals by Alvin.
