Under the motto “Come for the actor, stay for the music,” David Duchovny recently played a smattering of dates in support of his 2015 debut, Hell or Highwater on ThinkSay Records. The X-Files and Californication leading man picked up a guitar in the last decade during long stretches in trailers, learning the instrument and putting years of poetry to music. The resulting tracks constitute affable alt-country, folk and soft rock in the wheelhouse of Wilco or Lyle Lovett. Photographer Julia Drummond caught Duchovny at his Gramercy Theatre stop in New York last week to capture the breezy set in the gallery above.

By Brian Leak | February 6, 2018

For 30 years, David Duchovny has been on screens big and small with roles ranging from “Tess’s Birthday Party Friend” in 1988’s Working Girl to beloved characters like The X-Files‘ “spooky” FBI agent Fox Mulder and writer Hank Moody in the sex, drugs, and rock n’ roll-riddled Californication. In recent years, though, Duchovny has dabbled in other areas of entertainment. He’s written two books and has another on the way, and in 2015 he released his debut album, titled Hell Or Highwater.On Feb. 9, Duchovny will release his second full-length album, Every Third Thought, which he’ll begin supporting with a handful of tour dates in New Zealand and Australia.

Duchovny spoke with Billboard to discuss his process as a songwriter, the importance of music education, and what might be on the horizon for him and his band.

Award winning actor David Duchovny has returned on multiple fronts in 2018. With the reprisal of his role as Fox Mulder on the The X-Files on Jan. 3rd, the multi-talented Duchovny also shared some new tunes. Duchovny’s upcoming album Every Third Thought is due for release on Feb. 9 and the alt-rocker released the ethereal single “Half-Life” today (Jan. 22) in promotion of the upcoming LP.

Equipped with blaring riffs, a crooning synth melody, and a gentle acoustic guitar, the sci-fi actor’s album mixes love and science, with Duchovny singing subtly about the unconditional love. “Unconditional love decays, only fossilized hearts can break. Every piece is indivisible.”

“I find poetry in science,” Duchovny told Billboard. “Things like The Heisenberg principle or Schroedinger’s cat — things like this. The phrase half life and the fact that it refers to radioactive decay or decay struck me as a poetic and wonderfully ambiguous place to start a song about life and love.”

Along with the release of the album, Duchovny is set to embark on a short tour across Australia and New Zealand. The tour begins on Feb. 20 in Auckland, NZ and concludes on Mar. 1 in Brisbane, AU.

Rolling Stone: David Duchovny Details New Album ‘Every Third Thought’

Rolling Stone: David Duchovny Details New Album ‘Every Third Thought’

By Althea Legaspi | January 5, 2018

David Duchovny has announced the release of his sophomore album, Every Third Thought. The follow-up to 2015’s Hell or Highwater, the new 12-song set will be released on February 9th via King Baby/GMG.

According to a statement, the new material eschews the folky vibe of the musician-actor’s debut LP and moves into a more rock direction. It will first be released digitally and on streaming services before becoming available on CD and vinyl.

“I feel like this album presents a real growth lyrically and musically from the first and I can’t wait to get it out there,” Duchovny said in a statement.

Duchovny’s musical aspirations are a relatively recent development. In 2015, Duchovny told Rolling Stone he first picked up the guitar just a few years prior to amuse himself and he began with the classics. “The Beatles, Lou Reed, the Band, Petty — classic white-guy rock,” he said, naming artists whose songs he first learned to play on guitar. “I love Seventies funk, but I’m not good enough to play it yet. So hopefully, within the next year or so, I’ll get my jazzy chords and come out with a little Sly and the Family Stone tribute album.”

Following the release of Every Third Thought, he will embark on a tour through New Zealand and Australia with U.S. dates to follow. In the meantime, he’s starring in the 11th season of The X-Files, which premiered on Wednesday on Fox.
