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.

When football fever gripped England in the summer of 2018, as Gareth Southgate’s side saw off Sweden to book a place in the World Cup semi-finals, the celebrations extended to the sweltering heat of London’s Hyde Park. A huge crowd had assembled to witness a similarly colossal line-up curated by the Cure at British Summer Time, swapping the pubs and bars of the capital for sweeping goth-pop following the final whistle.

Steve Mason - About The Light (Album Review)
Thu 24 Jan 2019
‘About the Light’, Steve Mason’s first collection since 2016, is a raucous album of finely tuned British rock that gyrates and swaggers with skill and precision. It’s an excellent turn from a musician whose decades-long musical career has taken him on a journey through folktronica, experimental indie and the borderlands of downtempo shoegaze, and who has been through multiple reinventions since the Beta Band called it quits.
Blood Red Shoes - Get Tragic (Album Review)
Thu 31 Jan 2019
Blood Red Shoes’ fifth studio album is a lairy procession of ‘90s-infused indie-rock songs that make great use of Laura-Mary Carter’s sexy, laconic burr. Created after the band fell out—and Carter promptly left for L.A.—the Brighton duo built bridges and got to work. The result is probably their best work since 2008’s ‘Box of Secrets’.

Sharon Van Etten’s got them, too, but she favours a different approach to these small administrative tasks. ‘Remind Me Tomorrow’, her fifth album, is about being more present and not giving a shit about the small stuff.
