Bartees Strange will release a new album called Farm To Table on June 17 through 4AD. Recent single “Heavy Heart” will open the record, and a few tracks later comes new single “Cosigns”.
The new track finds Bartees over-awed by how far he’s come in his musical career – after all, he’s now on 4AD, home to The National – the band whom he made his name covering. In “Cosigns” he seems almost breathless as he takes stock of his current coterie of indie friends from Phoebe Bridgers to Lucy Dacus to Justin Vernon (Bon Iver). It starts off glitchy and electronic, but as he builds up a head of steam until the excitement overflows into a pulverising rocker filled with paranoia that reflects his feelings of impostor syndrome.
