"New Yorker" is the lead single from CHUCK's final LP, 'Frankenstein Songs for the Grocery Store,' out August 18th on limited 180 gram vinyl. "Dogs" is a non-album b-side.

About the new album, Charles Griffin Gibson had this to say:

“My new album, Frankenstein Songs for the Grocery Store, will be my last as CHUCK. But it's been a great run! I've been making DIY music since I was in High School. If you haven't done it, I can't explain how fun it is to build songs by yourself. It's a magical thing. But I know my path is leading elsewhere, and I'm not made for the music biz. I'm 30. I'm married. I have a full-time job. I just don't have it in me anymore. So without further adieu, please enjoy the final CHUCK record. It's got songs about diet, exercise, work, love, T.V. and animals.”

Previous Press:
“Seriously, do not let this one pass you by...Love it or hate it, Chuck will make you feel something to turn your day on its head.” – GOLD FLAKE PAINT

“He tells us of the forgotten people of New York City, the dead end jobs, the bottomless hopelessness of keeping a dying relationship alive....but also the romance of a night spent on a rooftop, or sleeping on a beach, or the chase for one last drink at one last bar.” – THE LINE OF BEST FIT

“Straddling the line between bedroom pop and high fidelity indie rock....Both gorgeous and joyously rough-around-the-edges.” - DIY MAG

“Encapsulates the feel of travel to amusement parks, train rides, boardwalk bound feelings, the feel of sand between your toes, seasonal loves, and books read to chase away any inkling of boredom.” – IMPOSE MAGAZINE

“Goofy simplicity...its nostalgia shows most in the balance between a sunny melody and little pokes that could only come from an observer with a bit of distance...” - BEDFORD & BOWERY

Track Name: New Yorker
When I graduated college
I moved into the east village
I got a job at a cool office
I got Billy Joel’s Greatest Hits
Huh-huh-huh (x2)
I found a couple bars to lay my head
And I drove to Queens and I bought a bed
I made a whole bunch of New York friends
And I wore all black cause everyone else did
Huh-huh-huh (x2)
And now I’m a New Yorker
At an art gallery downtown
I’m a New Yorker
Get the hell outta my way now
Yankees, Rangers, and Knicks
Theater, Pizza, Velvet Underground
I’m a New Yorker
Get the hell outta my way now and go die
Now I’m used to living hand to mouth
I go to Rockaway when it’s really hot out
I hate Williamsburg North, East and South
I know all the lunch spots in Midtown
Huh-huh-huh (x2)
I work so hard that my hair’s been gettin’ thin
I ain’t got no time to hit the gym
I picked up a little bit of Spanish
I’m a pretty smart guy, not for nothing
Huh-huh-huh (x2)
And now I’m a New Yorker
At an art gallery downtown
I’m a New Yorker
Get the hell outta my way now
Yankees, Rangers, and Knicks
Theater, Pizza, Velvet Underground
I’m a New Yorker
Get the hell outta my way now and go die
Go die (x4)
Track Name: Dogs [Studio]
Elaine
I met you up in Maine
You held me in the rain
Now I’m crying on the plane
You claimed
You’d never pull my chain
I’d never run away
We’ll always remain
Birds and bees
Whistlin’ through the trees
Woman and man
Boston and Japan
Callin’ my name
My name
My name
Callin’ my name
My name
My name
We were one
We were a loaded gun
Sundays in the sun
The end had begun
I pursued
I was stuck to you like glue
I threw up all my food
I knew that we were doomed
Birds and bees
Whistlin’ through the trees
Woman and man
Boston and Japan
Callin’ my name
My name
My name
Callin’ my name
My name
My name
Love
Hate
Sex
And fate
Time
And space
It’s a human
Human race
