Nada Surf Announce New Album ‘Moon Mirror’, Share New Song

    Nada Surf have announced their first album since 2020’s Never Not Together. It’s called Moon Mirror, and it arrives on September 13 via the band’s new label home New West Records. Today, they’ve shared a new single, ‘In Front of Me Now’. Check it out below, and scroll down for the album cover, tracklist, and Nada Surf’s upcoming tour dates.

    The band recorded Moon Mirror with producer Ian Laughton at the legendary Rockfield Studios in Monmouthshire, Wales. “Every time we make an album, I’m asked (and ask myself) what it’s about,” frontman Matthew Caws said in a press release. “I never know how to answer that question. I’m still trying to figure everything out, and that’s probably as close to a theme as there is. Looking back over the years, I know what our songs are about in theory: trying to reach acceptance (of circumstances, of oneself, of others), connection, a constant search for possibility and the bright side, a willingness to change, forgiveness, curiosity, checking in with one’s mortality, motivations and judgements, etc. But in the moment when making one up, I have no idea what I’m doing and maybe that’s ok. I’m just trying to stay honest with myself and take my best guess at making sense of the world.”

    Of the band’s new label home, he added, “We’ve been lucky to be on some really wonderful record labels over the years, and so far New West sure feels like another one of those. We couldn’t be more fortunate.”
