Shearwater have shared “Only Child”, a new track from their forthcoming album, Jet Plane and Oxbow, out 22 January on CD/ 2xLP/ DL worldwide on Sub Pop.

DIY premiered the track today and had this to say; “Latest track “Only Child” is a vast escape. Every last note is thrown into the skies, every giant declaration worthy adventure. More than anything, this is loud. Tone it down if you want, but the song and record sound best when they’re pushed to the limit.”

 

Listen: “Only Child”

Shearwater begin their European tour on 10 February in Berlin and will hit the UK on 17 February with a London date at Islington Assembley Hall. They will then continue their tour with shows in Bristol, Leeds, Glasgow, Newcastle, Manchester and Brighton as well as playing Dublin on 23 February.

 

Jet Plane and Oxbow is now available for pre-order through Sub Pop Mega Mart, Itunes , and Amazon. LP preorders though megamart.subpop.com will receive the limited “Loser” edition on blue colored vinyl while supplies last.

 

Additionally, pre ordering Jet Plane and Oxbow will allow listeners to stream the album before its street date, and provide access to an exclusive Shearwater podcast, “Headwaters,” which features demos and outtakes from the new record and a conversation between Meiburg and WNYC’s John Schaefer (host of New Sounds and theSoundcheck podcast). An edited version compiled and broadcast by Schaefer is available for streaming on the WNYC site.

 

More about Shearwater:

This is definitely Shearwater’s biggest and loudest record—it’s easy to imagine these songs roaring from the stage—but it’s also their most detailed and intricate one. Front man Jonathan Meiburg and producer/engineer Reisch (who also recorded 2012’s Animal Joy and the off-the-cuff collaborations of 2014’s Fellow Travelers) spent two years crafting Jet Plane and Oxbow with help from drummer Cully Symington, longtime Shearwater associates Howard Draper and Lucas Oswald, and tourmates Jesca Hoop, Abram Shook, and Jenn Wasner.

 

But their secret weapon this time is film composer and percussionist Brian Reitzell, whose soundtracks include The Virgin Suicides, Lost in Translation, The Bling Ring, and 30 Days of Night. Reitzell’s arsenal of strange instruments emphasizes Jet Plane and Oxbow’s cinematic depth and scope, and reflects the band’s choice to anchor the record in the era when digital technology was just beginning to transform the world of recorded music. In Shearwater’s hands this doesn’t feel like nostalgia; the racing synths and hammered dulcimers of heart-pounding opener “Prime” or the addled motorik of “Radio Silence” sound more like a metaphor for our own bewildering moment (read more at Sub Pop).
