Been Stellar Release New Song ‘Pumpkin’

    Been Stellar have dropped ‘Pumpkin’, the latest single from their upcoming LP Scream from New York, NY. It follows previous cuts ‘Passing Judgment’, ‘All in One’, and ‘Sweet’. Check it out below.

    Discussing the new song, singer Sam Slocum said in a press release:

    This song is somewhat of a sonic departure for us — it’s definitely more subdued. There was a point when we weren’t totally sure it would make it onto the album because of that. It had existed in many forms, but it wasn’t until the last month leading up to recording when each part fell into place.

    Oddly, the lyrics remained the same from the very beginning. They stemmed from a visual I had: an apartment light shining through its windows out onto a street at night. I imagined the people inside the apartment crossing back and forth in front of the window. From there, the lyrics I wrote formed a vignette of the people in the apartment, sharing a space together. I described several shared, intimate moments from my own life— I wanted to get as specific as I could.

    Scream from New York, NY comes out June 21 via Dirty Hit.
