With her debut solo album due out in just a few days, Best Coast's Bethany Cosentino has now delivered the final cut to be lifted from her forthcoming full-length.
The new single 'Natural Disaster' comes accompanied by a stunning new video, directed by Aaron Preusch, and follows on from the previously shared tracks 'It's Fine', 'Easy', and 'For A Moment' in previewing her new LP, also called 'Natural Disaster', which is out this Friday 28th July via Concord Records.
Speaking about the new offering, she said, “Natural Disaster was absolutely the easiest song on the album to write. Producer and songwriter Suzy Shinn sent me an instrumental track, and the moment I heard it, I ran to my music room and wrote this. It was one of those songs that felt like it was just waiting to come out of me. The message is very clear: I had been thinking a lot about the energy of the summer of 2020 in particular. Political upheaval, protests against police brutality, wildfires throughout the state of California, and other Natural Disasters around the globe. That chaotic energy was palpable on planet earth. The song is meant to serve as a commentary on the way we as humans go about our business as the world around us crumbles and literally burns. Thinking about the way our planet is changing is wildly anxiety-producing, but it’s very real, so I hope this song can call attention to it while also giving people something to sing along to.”
