Ty Segall announces new album, First Taste, shares “Taste”: Stream

on June 04, 2019, 10:03am

Staying true to his prolific status, Ty Segall is yet again announcing a new album. It’s titled First Taste and due for release on August 2nd through Drag City.

The 12-track collection follows this past March’s Deforming Lobes live album. First Taste also comes after a massive 2018 in which the garage rocker dropped both a covers record (Fudge Sandwich) and one of the year’s best original LPs (Freedom’s Goblin).

According to a statement, First Taste is a more introspective effort compared to its predecessors,

“Lines of struggle wind through the songs as Segall reflects on family, re-encountering pasts, anticipating futures. He skates through oneness, self-esteem, the parents – all the joys of a rain-filled childhood – while reaching outward in the here and now, feeling for a shared pulse.”

Along with exploring new personal subjects, First Taste incorporates a wide range of new instruments. Saxophones, koto, recorder, harmonizer, and mandolin are used, as are brass, bouzouki, and “a sprinkling of keys.”

To tease to the new album, Segall is sharing an almost-title track “Taste”. Check it out via its official music video, directed by Joshua Erkman.
