Night Surfer, the thirteenth studio album for acclaimed singer, songwriter and performer Chuck Prophet, was released September 23, 2014 on Yep Roc Records. In advance of the release, the first single, "Wish Me Luck," premiered at WSJ's Speakeasy.

Night Surfer was recorded in Prophet's hometown of San Francisco at Decibelle Recording Studio and in Nashville at Alex the Great with noted producer Brad Jones and was mixed in upstate New York by Paul Q Kolderie. Of the album, Prophet comments, "This record is loosely conceptual but universal all the same. It's all about a path forward, about looking around and imagining where we'll be in 20 years if we just follow that path. And of course, you'll find a persistent anxiety throughout; we live, after all, in anxious times. As John Murry told me after a first listen, 'It brings a tear to the eye and blood to the johnson.'" So yeah, a new record, new sound. It's got it's own groove with in your face guitars that snake and harmonize. They jangle too, thanks in no small part to special guest Peter Buck."

"Sounds for all the world like Bruce Springsteen doing 'Diamond Dogs'. - UNCUT

"His rock 'n' roll animal nature and diamond wit place him somewhere between Nick Lowe and The Rolling Stones." Classic Rock

"One of his best and a perfect entry point for anyone that might be intrigued" Q Magazine

"One of the grandest statements Prophet has made as a solo artist, filled with horns, strings and arena rock guitars" Mojo
