The Fall Of Hobo Johnson Album Out September 13th Via Reprise / Warner Records


On August 19, 2019 (Los Angeles, CA) – Showing no signs of slowing down, Sacramento’s own Hobo Johnson shares a new song titled “Subaru Crosstrek XV.” Listen to the track HERE. The Fall of Hobo Johnson will be released on September 13th via Reprise / Warner Records. Pre-order it HERE.
Additionally, Zane Lowe premiered “Subaru Crosstrek XV” today as an Apple Music “World Record” on Beats 1. Produced by Ryan Lewis, the song pays homage to the car Hobo bought when he upgraded from the ‘94 Toyota Corolla he used to live in. The “Subaru Crosstrek XV” is said to be built to last and engineered for a long, interesting life. It’s the kind of mission statement a resourceful guy like Hobo Johnson can get behind as the chorus in the song repeats “I just bought a Subaru Crosstrek, I would’ve bought a Lambo, but I’m not quite there yet.” 
The new track follows a recent performance at Lollapalooza and previously released music and videos for “Ugly Kid” and “Typical Story” from the new album. Additionally, Hobo made his TV debut with a show-stopping performance of “Typical Story” on Late Night with Seth Meyers HERE.
Hobo Johnson will be hitting the road this fall on The Fall Tour of Hobo Johnson, starting October 9th in Seattle, WA. Get tickets HERE. In addition to the tour, Hobo will be performing at various festivals in the coming months including Reading Festival, Leeds Festival and Voodoo Festival (full dates below).

Hailing from Sacramento, CA, artist Frank Lopes, who cultivated the moniker Hobo Johnson after being kicked out of his parents’ house and left to live in his ’94 Corolla, is propelling his way to the top. The half Azorean Portuguese, a quarter Mexican and Native American vocalist built a grassroots following via viral homegrown style videos showcasing his singularity; an amalgamation of spoken word poetry, punk, folk and rap backed by his band The Lovemakers. Hobo’s momentum reached a tipping point after gaining feverish interest through his entry in NPR’s “Tiny Desk” Contest, which went viral (26 million streams to date) despite not winning. Bursting with unadulterated sincerity, his genre-defying sound feels akin to the musical anomalies of the past and future. 2017 saw Hobo Johnson’s self-released debut album, The Rise of Hobo Johnson, sell-out shows everywhere and amassing over 105 million cumulative U.S. streams. Hobo Johnson’s impact only continues to grow with the coming of his sophomore album, The Fall of Hobo Johnson, and the lead single “Typical Story.”
