“It’s easier to think you’re no fun,” Cullen Omori pines in “3am Spiritual”, the latest offering from Smith Westerns’ forthcoming third studio album, Soft Will. It’s melancholy in areas, but mostly a feel good jam that evolves as it ages, sounding like a latter-era Beatles track: think “A Day in the Life” or “Something”. Stream below.

Soft Will is due out June 25th via Mom + Pop. The Chicago outfit will support the album with a North American tour this summer, the complete itinerary you can peep right after the tracklist.
