Mt. Joy are back with a new single, “Lemon Tree,” out today via Island Records. The track, which is accompanied by a dreamy, psychedelic-style music video, boasts luminous guitar underlining a head-nodding beat, before an off-kilter riff and saccharine refrain take hold.

“It’s about realizing that you can’t change the past, but if you can work on being a force of positive energy for others you can be rewarded with the privilege of moving on,” Matt Quinn reveals. “I was drawn to that phenomenon when you’re thinking of someone you haven’t spoken to in a while and that person texts you or reaches you in some physical way. At my most spiritual, I think there’s something about our energy that connects us. When you lean into positive energy, you’re rewarded for generating happiness for those around you. ‘Lemon Tree’ is about the power of our connection via this force.”
