Best Coast’s Bethany Cosentino Announces Debut Solo Album, Shares New Song ‘It’s Fine’

    Bethany Cosentino has announced her debut solo album, Natural Disaster, which will be out July 28 via Concord. Along with the news, Cosentino has also confirmed that Best Coast, whose last album was 2020’s Always Tomorrow, is going on an indefinite hiatus. Check out a Janell Shirtcliff-directed video for her new single ‘It’s Fine’ below, and scroll down for the LP’s cover art and tracklist.

    Butch Walker produced Natural Disaster, which was written in Nashville and Los Angeles. “When I look at all the artists I find most influential, the common thread is that they take risks and continue exploring different versions of themselves,” Cosentino said in a statement. “My goal is to keep growing and challenging myself and living outside any kind of box, to keep on evolving as an artist and a person. And if anyone’s feeling stagnant, I hope this record inspires them to see what else life has to offer. It’s really scary to take those risks and make big changes in your life, but what you find on the other side can be so magical.”

    Of her decision to put Best Coast on hold, Cosentino added: “My identity as a human being, and as an artist, has been so wrapped up in Best Coast for over a decade. The decision to pause the project indefinitely, and explore a new side of myself, was a very difficult one to make – but it felt necessary for me. Life is too short to not give yourself what you feel you need and want. I am excited about being just Bethany Cosentino for a while and figuring out who I am outside of the ‘Bethany from Best Coast’ box I’ve lived in for such a long time.”
