The Lemon Twigs have today released their new album Songs For The General Public today via 4AD / Remote Control.
The band made the worldwide debut of their song ‘Hell On Wheels’ live on US TV show Late Night With Seth Meyers earlier this week. The intimate performance, shot in a Midtown, NY loft, is transportive and timeless showcasing the D’Addario brothers’ soaring vocal abilities.
Songs For The General Public features previous singles ‘No One Holds You (Closer Than The One You Haven’t Met)’, ‘Live In Favor Of Tomorrow’, ‘Moon’ and ‘The One’. The D’Addario brothers wrote, recorded and produced the record entirely on tape at their Long Island home studio, Sonora Studios in Los Angeles.
Brian and Michael D’Addario first emerged as The Lemon Twigs in 2016 with their debut LP Do Hollywood, whose showstopping melodies mined from every era of rock quickly earned fans in Elton John, Questlove, and Jack Antonoff. Go To School, the ambitious 15-track coming-of-age opus, followed in 2018 and solidified the band’s reputation for building grand walls of sound around an audacious concept.
The 12-track Song For The General Public will be released on digitally and on CD, limited translucent red vinyl (indie stores and 4AD Store only) and standard black vinyl.
