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

Having toured and collaborated with a diverse selection of musicians ranging from St. Vincent to Deerhunter, the Welsh musician and producer could loosely be described as trading in sprawling alt-folk, but that would only tell half the story. On her newest record, ‘Reward’, Le Bon creates a unique world indebted to new wave and jazz as much as it is to contemporary pop and folk acts—all with her own idiosyncratic twist.
