Boston-based quartet Future Teens have shared a new song called ‘Team Sports’, which features backing vocals from the Wonder Years’ Dan Campbell. It’s the latest preview of their upcoming album Self Help, following previous singles ‘Same Difference’ and ‘BYOB’. Check it out below.
“The first time I bleached my hair, a surprising number of people asked if I was doing okay,” the band’s Amy Hoffman said in a press release. “I know they were just razzing me, but it struck me as such an absurd barometer for wellness, like, no! I’m not okay, but that’s not why I’m blonde now! I think it’ll always be challenging to ask for help, or to be honest when my best friend gently checks in about the motivation for my latest self haircut, but I’m grateful I’m not always white knuckling it until my next therapy session anymore.”
“That last chorus was originally a wordless, rock out ending, but Andy [D. Park] felt like there was something missing,” Hoffman added. “Dan happened to visit us as we were working through it and was kind enough to sing on that section. All of our jaws hit the floor as soon as he started, it was such a memorable part of recording the album.”
Self Help is set for release on September 23 via Triple Crown Records.
