With their eagerly-awaited new compilation landing in just a few weeks, Wye Oak have now delivered a brand new single lifted from their upcoming release.
The new single 'I Learned It From You' is taken from the duo's forthcoming collection ‘Every Day Like the Last: Collected Singles 2019-2023’, which features brand new songs and previously released tracks made over the last four years, and is set to be released on the 23rd June via Merge Records.
Speaking about the new offering, the band's Jenn Wasner said, "This song is about unconsciously recreating dysfunctional patterns, and about the exhaustion and despair that comes from realizing that awareness alone isn’t necessarily enough to save you from repeating your past. The metallic sound in the intro is the sound of Andy pulling down the metal door of our storage unit practice space (which we would open between takes to get some fresh air from the hallway). Conveniently enough, the hallway also functioned as a perfectly serviceable reverb. Later, our friend Joseph Decosimo recorded the fiddle parts with Andy at Doom Homestead.”
