Mac DeMarco Shares Single and Dates

Mac DeMarco Shares new single "Brother". His upcoming release "Salad Days" comes out April 1st via Captured Tracks. Mac DeMarco plays 03-14 Santiago, Chile

After recently announcing his new album Salad Days, Mac DeMarco is back today to share the album’s second single. Whereas Salad Days as a whole is a more serious, contemplative affair than his previous releases, “Brother” finds Mac more sincere than we’ve seen him to date. In addition to the new track, Mac has also announced a new 7″ subscription series, available exclusively through Captured Tracks, called “The Wonderful World of Mac DeMarco, Vol. 1”. The series will offer subscribers a 7″ of previously unreleased Mac DeMarco every 6-8 weeks, in addition to other Mac-related goodies.

Written and recorded around a relentless touring schedule, Salad Days gives the listener a very personal insight into what it’s all about to be Mac amidst the craziness of a rising career in a very public format. The lead single, “Passing Out Pieces,” set to huge overdriven organ chords, contains lines like “…never been reluctant to share, passing out pieces of me…” Clearly, this isn’t the same record that breezily gave us “Dreamin” and “Ode to Viceroy,” but the result of what comes from their success. “Chamber of Reflection,” a track featuring icy synth stabs and soulful crooning, wouldn’t be out of place on a fantasy Shuggie Otis and Prince collaboration. 

We’re only in Part 2 1/2 (one EP and two LP’s in) of Mac’s career. As you read this and as you hear the album on April Fool’s Day of this year, he’ll probably be on tour, or preparing for one… or maybe already writing new music.
