Wild Pink share a new track, ‘You Can Have It Back’ from their forthcoming album, “A Billion Little Lights”.
The track featuring the pure, elegant voice of Ratboys’ Julia Steiner, sits wonderfully across blocks of Americana guitar and folky drum textures.
Speaking about the track, Wild Pink’s frontman John Ross reveals: “This was the last song I wrote for the album, and it’s also one of the most fun to play live. Wild Pink songs typically don’t follow conventional song structures but with this one I did. Julia’s vocals totally make this song what it is, and I love Dan’s harmonies in the choruses – I wrote it with the intention of having someone else sing it. but ended up just singing it myself. This song is inspired by Fleetwood Mac and, once again, “If I Needed You” by Townes Van Zandt (one of the greatest songs ever written). Special cameo by Computer the Dog.”
The album was produced, mixed, and co-engineered by producer David Greenbaum, who’s worked with the likes of Beck, U2, Cage The Elephant, and Jenny Lewis. It was written over the course of a year at the frontman’s new home in New York’s Hudson Valley.
Wild Pink’s “A Billion Little Lights” will be released on 19 February 2021 via Royal Mountain Records.
