Today, The Lemon Twigs reveal the second single from their forthcoming third album, Songs For The General Public, entitled ‘Moon.’ The thrilling sax-driven track revels in hints of Bruce Springsteen and even fellow Long Islander Billy Joel. The D’Addario brothers wrote, recorded and produced the forthcoming album entirely on tape at their Long Island home studio, Sonora Studios in Los Angeles, and Electric Lady in New York City. ‘Moon‘ is preceded by ‘The One,’ which earned praise as “excellent” (Flood), “kaleidoscopic” (CoS) and “prodigious” (Paste) as well as comparisons to recent collaborator Todd Rundgren (Gigwise). Songs For The General Public is out August 21 on 4AD / Remote Control.
The prodigiously-talented duo first emerged as The Lemon Twigs in 2016 with their debut LP Do Hollywood, whose show-stopping 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 album will be released on August 21 digitally and on CD, limited translucent red vinyl (only available via indie stores and the 4AD Store) and standard black vinyl.
