Superchunk Share New Single ‘This Night’

    Superchunk have shared the latest single from their forthcoming album, Wild Loneliness. Featuring strings by Owen Pallett and backup vocals by Tracyanne Campbell (Camera Obscura, Tracyanne & Danny), ‘This Night’ follows the previously unveiled track ‘Endless Summer’. Check out a lyric video for it below.

    “Like much of Wild Loneliness, this song was written in the mode of ‘let’s look around and be thankful for what we have rather than focusing on what Republicans have taken from an entire generation’; it’s nostalgic but in a way that tries to capture what’s still relevant and positive about long relationships,” Superchunk’s Mac McCaughan explained in a statement. “So, backwards- and forwards-looking about music, love, day-to-day life. The song itself reminded me of some of my favourite pop bands like Camera Obscura, and through the magic of technology (and maybe the only good thing about the internet?), we are lucky to have Tracyanne Campbell lending her inimitable voice to the song.”

    Wild Loneliness is set for release on February 25 via Merge Records.
