Psychic Ills release new track “Baby”

Psychic Ills release new track "Baby." The song is off their forthcoming LP 'Inner Journey Out,'

Psychic Ills have already shared the first two singles (“I Don’t Mind” and “Another Change”) from their fifth album, Inner Journey Out, available June 3rd via Sacred Bones. Today they’ve shared a new track from the album, “Baby.”

Psychic Ills’ Tres Warren explains the creation of “Baby” saying, “Baby was one of the earliest demos I had for Inner Journey Out, but it was one of the last songs we finished. I really like what the gospel singers brought to it. Dennis Wilson’s ‘Pacific Ocean Blue’ and Dion’s ‘Born To Be With You’ were big influences on this record, and definitely this song. Those records can still make me cry on the right day…”

The seekers in New York City’s Psychic Ills have spent more than a decade following their muse wherever it takes them. Inner Journey Out, the band’s highly anticipated fifth album and first since 2013, is the culmination of an odyssey of three years of writing, traversing the psych-rock landscape they’ve carved throughout their career and taking inspired pilgrimages into country, blues, gospel, and jazz.

Inner Journey Out started out the way many Ills records have – with frontman Tres Warren’s demos. Like all of their records, Elizabeth Hart’s bass is the glue that holds everything together. Where other recent albums found Warren overdubbing himself to create a blown-out, widescreen sound, this recording handed the reigns to a multitude of guest players. A cadre of musicians and vocalists – including Mazzy Star’s Hope Sandoval, who duets on lead single “I Don’t Mind” – join in on the journey. This is also the first record to feature touring keyboard player Brent Cordero, his Farfisa and Wurlitzer work is a staple throughout. Rounding things out, is a platoon of drummers and percussionist including; Chris Millstein, Harry Druzd of Endless Boogie, Derek James of The Entrance Band, and Charles Burst, one of the record’s engineers. These musicians build the frame on which Warren lays his hazy guitar and vocals. An endless array of friends and guests join the proceedings to provide pedal steel guitar, horns, strings, and backing vocals, which culminate in a career-defining moment for the Ills.

The friends and family collaborative effort extends beyond the sound and into the design of the record with artists and long time Psychic Ills collaborators Jonah Freeman and Justin Lowe creating all of the art for the record.
