The follow-up to 2017's Billboard 200 Top 30 success This Old Dog, Here Comes The Cowboy is Mac DeMarco's fourth full-length and debut release on his own Mac's Record Label, introduced by the waltzing lead single, "Nobody." As described by DeMarco, "This one is my cowboy record. Cowboy is a term of endearment to me, I use it often when referring to people in my life. Where I grew up there are many people that sincerely wear cowboy hats and do cowboy activities. These aren't the people I'm referring to." Here Comes The Cowboy was written, tracked and mixed at DeMarco's Jizz Jazz Studios in Los Angeles, CA during the first two weeks of January 2019. Nearly every instrument on the album was played by DeMarco, aside from keyboards on select tracks by touring member and close friend Alec Meen. Traveling sound engineer, Joe Santarpia, helped shape the record, sharing engineering and mixing duties with DeMarco. The rusty old grinning pin on the front and back covers was purchased from a man in the mountains somewhere in the Nantahala National Forest between Chattanooga, TN and Asheville, NC.
