Parquet Courts have announced a new 12″ single called ‘Plant Life’, a physical-only release that won’t be available on streaming services. The band previously debuted an extended mix of the track over the weekend on Japanese radio station FM Karuizawa, during Dr. Rob’s show. You can listen to it here (around the 10-minute mark).
“‘Plant Life’ the song is my story of rediscovering my passion for music through New York City dance floors,” the band’s Austin Brown said in a statement. “It’s a distillation from a 40 plus minute improvisation prompted by producer Rodaidh McDonald, and every way we’ve sliced it up illustrates a different mood of the same perspective of ecstasy and aspiration to not only grow, but form roots outside of our own barriers.”
The B-side of the record features two remixes – one by Vancouver’s Yu Su and another by Peak Wifi, the project of Parquet Courts’ Austin Brown and New York-based producer Bryce Hackford.
