Foxygen Announce New LP 'Seeing Other People', Post Video For Lead Single Livin' A Lie

Wednesday, 06 February 2019 Written by Laura Johnson

Foxygen have shared a new single, Livin' A Lie.

The track is the first to be shared from their new album, 'Seeing Other People', which is due out through Jagjaguwar on April 26 and which they describe as “Sad-Boy Plastic-Soul Adult-Contemporary Cartoon-Noir Music.”

The duo wrote and produced the record themselves at Sonora Recorders in Los Feliz, California, with Jim Keltner filling in on drums. Foxygen's Sam France explained the album is a goodbye of sorts:

“Goodbye to the drugs, to the partying. Goodbye to my twenties now, Goodbye to my Saint Laurent-model-body. Goodbye to the touring circus — that’s right, no more shows or tours for a while. Goodbye, hopefully, to the anxiety attacks. Goodbye to beating myself up because I didn’t fit into those leather pants anymore. Fuck it. Goodbye to the facilities. And goodbye the leeches in my life.

I remember a quote from Rado sticking with the press a few years ago about how we’d lived every rock n roll cliche in, about, one year. Well, here’s the album about it. Another movie. I don’t know what’s next. But here’s a snapshot of it all.” 

Head below to check out the video for Livin' A Lie, along with the record's artwork and tracklist. The track features maudlin lyrics about fame, accompanied by a rich indie-rock backdrop enhanced by orchestral strings.

'Seeing Other People' tracklist:

1.Work
2. Mona
3. Seeing Other People
4. Face The Facts
5. Livin’ A Lie

Tue 27 Aug 2019
The stars of mid-2000s indie discos are frozen in time in the memories of a lot of people—their music might as well be an advert for sticky floors and test tube shots. And that’s where the Futureheads, who had a couple of songs that were students’ union staples, might still reside in the eyes of some.

Fri 06 Sep 2019
Photo: Travis Shinn If you’ve waited a long time for something, you might as well spend a long time with it once it finally arrives, right? Tool’s return, after a 13 year absence that amounted to torture for their committed following, is a slow moving, dense work defined by its patient approach. Its steadfast insistence on hitting its marks in its own time, and skipping zero pages in the band’s playbook, will delight diehards.

Wed 04 Sep 2019
Seeking to stay true to a punk aesthetic, Ezra Furman and band recorded ‘Twelve Nudes’ at a rapid pace with creative help from booze and cigarettes. And it shows. It doesn’t deliver the production finesse of 2018’s ‘Transangelic Exodus’, but that’s kind of the point.
The Futureheads - Powers (Album Review)
Mon 02 Sep 2019
‘Powers’ is the Futureheads’ sixth studio album and the first since the band went on hiatus following the lukewarm reception to their excellent a capella offering ‘Rant!’ in 2013. It is a return to the thrashy post punk sound that characterised their early success, and while familiar problems arise with several songs, it is a record of intricate and innovative arrangements that should place them firmly back on the European festival circuit next year.
