Real Estate frontman Martin Courtney has released a new song, ‘Sailboat’, the second preview of his upcoming solo LP Magic Sign. The track, which follows previous offering ‘Corncob’, arrives with an accompanying video. Check it out below.
Of the new single, Courtney said in a statement:
For some reason I always assumed I did not possess a ‘license to rock’. This song is my attempt at some unlicensed rocking. I was extremely fortunate to have Matt Barrick, who drummed on the greatest rock song of the 2000s, ‘The Rat’, on this one. Couldn’t have done it any other way.
Lyrically this song is kind of about keeping things in perspective and attempting to stay positive in the face of all of the bullshit. An increasingly difficult task.
And I just thought ‘Sailboat’ was a funny name.
Magic Sign is due for release on June 24 via Domino.
