Here is an excellent new single from Delta Spirit. The video, directed by Michael Parks Randa, really captures the essence of the song and features footage of 30 Americans living in isolation during the coronavirus pandemic. Randa explains: “The result is a celebration of the collaborative spirit of filmmaking, a successful experiment in safely navigating production during the pandemic, and a mosaic of America during this time.”
The song has the feel of a psychedelic Americana sweeping epic with a screeching guitar solo as the emotional high point. ‘How Bout It’ is taken from their upcoming album ‘What is There’, which is due for release on 11th September. It’s their first new material in 6 years, following the acclaimed 2014 release, ‘Into the Wide’.
Frontman, Matthew Logan Vasquez says of the new record, “I’m really proud of our body of work, but especially proud of where everybody has gotten to now. I have a lot of hope for us. I’m grateful for everyone in this band. There’s a lot of raw honesty in the music. It’s a record for right now, instead of pandering to the past. It’s the next step.” On the evidence of this single, the new record will be something to look out for.
