For The Killing Of Eugene Peeps, Keb looked to ’70s crime flicks, French new wave cinema, and Giallo — the Italian term for crime fiction, which takes its name from the yellow covers of early mystery novels in the ’50s and ’60s.

The album was originally split into three parts — film score, soundtrack, and incidental music — and spans psychedelic folk, “anti-ballads”, and Spaghetti Western-esque tunes complete with suitably gruff vocals.

Alongside the standard vinyl edition, Gearbox is also releasing a limited number of eco-vinyl variations, which have been made with 100% recycled materials using energy-efficient production methods.

The Killing Of Eugene Peeps follows Keb’s 2017 album 22.02.85, on First Word.
