A Lovejoy is the thirty-ninth studio album by Omar Rodríguez-López as a solo artist, released on December 30, 2016. It is his thirteenth release overall in the bi-weekly album series initiated by Ipecac Recordings.[1] Having completed the original series of records, A Lovejoy serves as the start of a new series of 12 additional records scheduled to be released in the same fashion through the first half of 2017.[2]

A brief clip of "Faceless and Tired" was included in a video posted by Omar on Facebook in August while in Korea with At the Drive-In. "Un Recuerdo" revisits the penultimate track "Avión Apestoso", from 2012's Octopus Kool Aid. "Still Not Breathing" was partially featured in his 2010 film debut The Sentimental Engine Slayer. The song "Tlaquepaque" is named after the neighbouring municipality in Jalisco where Rodríguez-López lived in at the time of recording.

"Faceless and Tired" was uploaded in advance as the album's single.
