Best Coast have released a new single ‘Different Light’, from their highly anticipated LP, Always Tomorrow that drops 21 February, via Concord Records.
The new single sees the band take a step back and try looking at the world through another’s point of view.
“Guess before I thought of only things being in black or white / Who am I to judge if you still see things in a different light?/ Hell has many mansions and yours could still be incomplete/Who am I to judge if you still see things in a different light,”sings Bethany Cosentino.
‘Different Light’ is the third single off their new record, following last year’s 80s pop-flavoured ‘For the First Time’ and this month’s ‘Everything Has Changed’, which featured the cast of the hit reality show hit Vanderpump Rules.
Always Tomorrow was produced by Best Coast members Cosentino (vocals/guitar) and Bobb Bruno (guitar) along with Carlos de la Garza and Paramore producer Justin Meldal-Johnsen. The new album follows the duo’s 2015 release, California Nights.
The new record is product of a decade of self-discovery and personal growth, Cosentino shared in an official statement.
“After we finished the album cycle for California Nights, something terrifying happened to me. I felt creatively paralyzed. I couldn’t write music,” shared Cosentino.
“There was so much bubbling inside of me, so many things happening, so much to process, but I couldn’t get any of it out. I was miserable and felt like nothing was ever going to change. One day, I locked myself in my closet and I forced myself to write, and out came ‘Everything Has Changed’. The song was like a vision of life I wished I was living; ultimately, that song was prophetic – describing the life I would soon be living.”
“Always Tomorrow is the story of where I was and where I am now, as well as the struggles I am still learning to identify and figure out. Some days I wake up and I feel like I’m on top of the world and I forget about everything that’s ever bummed me out, and other days, it all comes flooding back. This album is about leaving the darkness for the light, but still understanding that nothing is ever going to be perfect.”
Best Coast also kicks off their North American tour later this month, with support from Mannequin Pussy on most dates.
