Wild Pink Release New Song ‘Florida’

    Wild Pink have shared a new standalone single, ‘Florida’, in honour of frontman John Ross’ home state. Check it out below.

    In a statement (via Stereogum), Ross said of the new track:

    “Florida” is a love letter to the state I grew up in. It has a bad reputation, which is well deserved, but I think it’s also a misunderstood state. It’s got its own thing going on if you look hard enough, and the natural beauty there is unreal. Florida is a rewarding place if you spend the time finding its charm. I grew up listening to a lot of Florida bands like I Hate Myself and Shai Hulud, which was really formative for me early on.

    This was the first song I wrote after a long musical hiatus during the lockdown. I had just gotten an upright piano for free on Facebook Marketplace and the piano loop was the first thing I wrote on it. ‘Florida’ puts a period at the end of the A Billion Little Lights sentence, in my mind.

    A Billion Little LightsWild Pink’s latest album, arrived back in February. Since then, they’ve shared the 3 Songs and 6 Cover Songs EPs.
