on April 23, 2015, 2:15pm

On May 19th, Los Angeles indie pop collective Fool’s Gold will release its third studio album. Flying Lessons follows 2011’s Leave No Trace and the group’s 2009 self-titled breakthrough debut. Like its predecessors, the new LP boasts lush, layered instrumentation influenced by traditional music from Africa and the Middle East.

“Flying Lessons encompasses everything we’ve been about for the last 7+ years, both musically and emotionally,” singer/bassist Luke Tops said of the new record in an official statement. “It is the culmination of countless hours of travel, gigs, success, failure, darkness, joy, and the stubborn insistence to move forward and create our best work to date.”

As a preview, the band’s unveiled “Another Sun”. Highlighted by graceful guitar noodling, it’s an engaging pop number that also doubles as a plea for reconciliation. “Why don’t we try to wash away the pain?” the frontman asks. His velvety croon soars high into the ether, as though he’s willing to go to the ends of the Earth in order to make amends. Listen in below.
