Here We Go Magic is returning with a new album, Be Small, on October 16th. Due out through Secretly Canadian, the 11-track effort marks the group’s first since 2012’s Nigel Godrich-produced A Different Ship and fourth overall.
Be Small was recorded by the Brooklyn indie rockers themselves and sees them adopting a more intimate sound and “smaller approach to production,” according to a press release. The full-length was “inspired by Brian Eno and John Cale’s Wrong Way Up and Robert Wyatt’s Shleep,” and, as frontman Luke Temple says, features “overtly major and optimistic” songs of the future pop variety.
As a preview, the band has let loose lead single “Falling”, a bubbly and propulsive synth-driven number. Check it out below via its summery music video, directed by Sam Kuhn.
Be Small Tracklist:
03. Be Small
05. Candy Apple
06. Girls in the Early Morning
07. Tokyo London US Korea
08. Wishing Well
09. Ordinary Feeling
11. Dancing World
In support of the LP, the group will tour Europe and North America this summer.
