Foxygen have released a new single, “Livin’ a Lie,” to mark the announcement of their forthcoming album Seeing Other People, due April 26 via Jagjaguwar.
The indie-rock duo classify their self-produced album as “Sad-Boy Plastic-Soul Adult-Contemporary Cartoon-Noir Music.”
Vocalist Sam France said of their personal and emotional investments into this new chapter:
As my partner [Jonathan] Rado and I recorded the latest Foxygen album, I was putting the finishing touches on a memoir following my time in the band and music industry at large. While the following statement about the new record is not an excerpt from this memoir, it was written freshly upon completing it. It sealed a lot of things in my my mind/life/this new Foxygen album thematically. The memoir is a tell-all called Sam Francisco: Confessions of an Indie Rock Star and will be out very soon. But the new Foxygen record is called: Seeing Other People.
Conscious of their self-imposed genre classification, the release of the brooding new single “Livin’ a Lie” is accompanied by its even moodier music video.
