Wye Oak have unveiled ‘I Learned It From You’, one of three new songs that will appear on their forthcoming collection Every Day Like the Last. It follows the previously released title track. Take a listen below.
“This song is about unconsciously recreating dysfunctional patterns, and about the exhaustion and despair that comes from realizing that awareness alone isn’t necessarily enough to save you from repeating your past,” Jenn Wasner explained in a statement. “The metallic sound in the intro is the sound of Andy pulling down the metal door of our storage unit practice space (which we would open between takes to get some fresh air from the hallway). Conveniently enough, the hallway also functioned as a perfectly serviceable reverb. Later, our friend Joseph Decosimo recorded the fiddle parts with Andy at Doom Homestead.”
Every Day Like the Last arrives June 23 on Merge Records.
