Published Jan 09, 2019Deerhunter's new album Why Hasn't Everything Already Disappeared? is out later this month, and the band are once again showing it off with a new teaser track. This time it's the album's "Plains."
You can hear "Plains" over here or down below.
The press release for the track comes with the following excerpt:
I was listening to the trains. I was up all night. And something glistened in the strange blood-diffused light. My friend was missing. And I was ghost. I was flame. I was bright. I was listening to the trains. I was up all night. "Oh, James. You've got no reason to stay in these plains." I was racing against time with this friend of mine. Collapsing just before we reach the end of the line. He was lifted. Diamond straight. Straight was cold. Cold was black. And black was glistening. All the night — the sound of trains. "Oh, James. You've got no reason to stay in these plains." These plains are barren and hateful terrain. And what remains is the sound of trains.
As previously reported, Why Hasn't Everything Already Disappeared? is due out January 18 though 4AD. The album follows 2015's Fading Frontier.
Deerhunter have also mapped out a North American tour, and you can see the dates for that here.
