Foxygen, have dropped another single “Face The Facts” off their forthcoming release, Seeing Other People, out April 26th via Jagjaguwar. The track Follows lead single “Livin’ A Lie,” “Face The Facts,” which gives a humorous take on becoming an irrelevant artist. France sings: “You’re never gonna be a famous rock n’ roller / now that it’s over/ face the facts.” The track features Kane Richotte on an all-snare drum drum set, Rob Moose (Bon Iver, Alabama Shakes) playing strings, and “Radotronics.”
Seeing Other People is described as Foxygen’s “most straightforward goodbye album yet; “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. F**k it. Goodbye to the facilities. And goodbye the leeches in my life,” says France. See the full-length letter here. The album is filled with self-referential tales of touring, partying, of being young and in a band, and saying farewell to the grittier, darker aspects of it all. “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.”
Written and produced entirely by Foxygen at Sonora Recorders in Los Feliz, CA and engineered and mixed by Shawn Everett. The album features legendary drummer Jim Keltner.
