The New Pornographers Release New Single ‘Angelcover’

    The New Pornographers have released a new track, ‘Angelcover’, lifted from their forthcoming LP Continue as a Guest. Listen to it below.

    “I pictured this one as a weird little George Saunders-esque sketch, a snapshot,” frontman A.C. Newman explained in a statement. “I found myself a lot more concerned with performance and/or delivery, changing melody and phrasing to get a better performance, less concerned, less precious about the original melody or lyric that I wrote. With that in mind, I had the idea of angels visiting me in the night with the message that ‘melody ain’t got nothing on delivery.’ Kind of a fever dream, where feelings take on their own personality and shape.”

    Continue as a Guest, the New Pornographers’ first album for Merge, arrives on March 31. The band previously previewed the record with a video for the lead single ‘Really Really Light’, which made our Best New Songs segment.
