Davy is Coconut Records' 2009 second release. The album is, as was Nighttiming, the product of Jason Schwartzman, who wrote all of the songs and performs the majority of the instruments.

The first official single for the album was "Microphone". A portion of "Any Fun" is in a teaser video on the Coconut Records MySpace page. The tracklisting and album art first appeared on the independent online music store Amie Street.[8]

Like Nighttiming, the CD pressing of Davy contains demo and alternate versions of the album's songs after the final track.

The songs "Wires" and "I Am Young" were featured on the Funny People original soundtrack.

Two music videos were made for this album; "Microphone" and "Any Fun".

Cover art[edit]

The album's artwork was inspired by the book cover of the Penguin Books' edition of Aldous Huxley's novel Island.[9]
