The new song comes alongside the same hand-drawn animated visualiser as their last two non-album singles, Little Things and Certainty. You can hear the new song below, and stream or purchase it through your platform of choice here.
The song has not been officially announced as part of an upcoming album, however in an interview with Mojo, the band announced that they plan to release a 20-track double LP next year. Guitarist and main songwriter Adrienne Lenker revealed the origins of the album’s length: “We accumulated so many songs that we loved, maybe about 50,” she said. “20 could be whittled down to 12, but not 50.”
