WHY? Announce New Album ‘The Well I Fell Into’, Release New Song

    WHY? – the band led by Cincinnati songwriter Yoni Wolf – have announced their eighth LP, The Well I Fell Into, which is set to arrive on August 2. Today’s announcement comes with the release of the new single ‘The Letters, Etc.’. Check it out and find the album cover and tracklist below.

    Yoni Wolf and his bandmates – his brother Josiah Wolf, Doug McDiarmid, and Andrew Broder – recorded the new album with Brian Joseph at Eau Claire, Wisconsin’s Hive Studio. It features contributions from Gia Margaret, Finom’s Macie Stewart, Lala Lala’s Lillie West, Serengeti, and Ada Lea.

    “This song was partially written for a year or two but the words to finish it just wouldn’t come until some further life experiences led it into its current incarnation,” Wolf said of ‘The Letters, Etc.’ in a statement. “Though potentially filled with paranoid conjecture, it is also a song of acceptance, with only best wishes upon embarking on a difficult long-term estrangement. T’ruah. Love and let live.”

    Opening up about the album, Wolf commented: “Making a WHY? album is an opportunity for me to button up a period of my life. I’m bad at realising how I feel or how something is affecting me in the moment. Things just sit inside me, but writing is a way to really take stock.”

    “This is not a bitter kiss off,” he added. “While the songwriting was cathartic, I can see my life beyond some story or mythology I’ve cornered myself into artistically. I’m not getting stuck in sentiment like I might have in my 20s.”
