Boy Scouts Announces New Album ‘Wayfinder’, Shares New Song ‘That’s Life Honey’

    Boy Scouts, the moniker of singer-songwriter Taylor Vick, has announced a new album. It’s called Wayfinder, and it arrives October 1 via ANTI-. Today’s announcement comes with the release of the new single ‘That’s Life Honey’, alongside an accompanying video directed by Jake Nokovic. Check it out below and scroll down for the LP’s cover art and tracklist. 

    “This song is about trying to make light of a shitty situation,” Vick said of ‘That’s Life Honey’ in a press release. “Having a circumstance that sucks, like wanting to go to therapy but you can’t afford it, and fantasizing about a world where you could get a chip implanted or have some surgery that rewires your brain and resolves you from whatever problems you have. This song is mostly my attempt at writing a tragicomedy, combined with true experiences of figuring out how to open up to people.”

    Recorded in Anacortes, Washington at The Unknown, Wayfinder sees Vick reuniting with longtime collaborator Stephen Steinbrink. The album, which includes collaborations with  Taylor’s brother Travis and Jay Som’s Melina Duterte, takes its name from Sallie Tisdale’s book Advice for Future Corpses (and Those Who Love Them): A Practical Perspective on Death and Dying. “For my whole life, music has been a crucial part of my identity and how I relate to the world,” Vick explained. “The act of making music has been my wayfinder during the past year.”

    Wayfinder will follow Boy Scouts’ 2019 album Free Company. Revisit our Artist Spotlight Q&A with Boy Scouts.
