NEWS: Superchunk share new single ‘This Night’ feat Tracyanne Campbell & Owen Pallett

Arriving February 25th is Superchunk‘s new album Wild Loneliness, in advance they are sharing the album’s Side B opener This Night‘, this anthemic song features strings by Owen Pallett and backup vocals by Tracyanne Campbell (Camera Obscura, Tracyanne & Danny). Its lyric video gives a nod to The Replacements; watch it today:

Superchunk’s Mac McCaughan on the track:

Like much of Wild Loneliness, this song was written in the mode of ‘let’s look around and be thankful for what we have rather than focusing on what Republicans have taken from an entire generation’; it’s nostalgic but in a way that tries to capture what’s still relevant and positive about long relationships. So, backwards- and forwards-looking about music, love, day-to-day life. The song itself reminded me of some of my favourite pop bands like Camera Obscura, and through the magic of technology (and maybe the only good thing about the internet?), we are lucky to have Tracyanne Campbell lending her inimitable voice to the song.

Wild Loneliness is an album described by poet Maggie Smith as “unskippably excellent and infectious… a blend of stripped-down and lush, electric and acoustic, highs and lows.” 

Superchunk embark on a North American tour in support of Wild Loneliness in late February, and tickets are on sale now. Laura Ballance plays bass on the album, and the live Superchunk lineup will continue as Mac McCaughan, Jim Wilbur, and Jon Wurster, with Jason Narducy on bass.
