Real Estate Announce New Album ‘Daniel’, Share Video for New Single ‘Water Underground’

    Real Estate have announced their new album, Daniel, which is set for release on February 23 via Domino. Lead single ‘Water Underground’ arrives today with a video inspired by the 1990s Nickelodeon sitcom The Adventures of Pete & Pete. The clip was directed by Edmond Hawkins and stars the show’s Danny Tamberelli and Michael C. Maronna. Check it out and find the LP’s details below.

    Martin Courtney, Alex Bleeker, Matt Kallman, Julian Lynch, and Sammi Niss recorded the follow-up to 2020’s The Main Thing at Nashville’s RCA Studio A with producer Daniel Tashian. According to a press release, they named the album Daniel “simply because it seemed like a good idea to bestow a human name upon a record. Was it for Daniel Tashian? Maybe. Was it the sign of a band that has now been around long enough to take its music seriously without taking itself or its perception too seriously? Absolutely.”

    “This song is about writing songs,” Courtney said of ‘Water Underground’ in a statement. “I think ‘Water Underground’ is like the unconscious, the mysterious part of your brain where creativity comes from. The constant flow of music in the back of your head. You get an idea while driving or walking the dog or something and you want to hold on to it.”

    “New Jersey roots are hard to break,” Tamberelli commented. “Julian, Alex and Martin all grew up one town away from me and were actually friends with the younger siblings of my friends from Ridgewood. They told me they even saw me perform at the local bandshell with some of those older siblings while I was in high school. The video brings it full circle and adding my dear old friends from the show into the fold really tied it all together.”
