Am 22. Mai wird das neue Album der Psych-Soul-Band um Ruban Nielson via Jagjaguwar erscheinen. Mit »Can’t Keep Checking My Phone« kann man bereits den zweiten Song vorab online hören.

Zunächst wurde die Vorfreude mit der Online-Veröffentlichung des Titel-Tracks »Multi-Love« geschürt. Gestern wurde nun die zweite Single »Can’t Keep Checking My Phone« inklusive eines ausführlichen Statements nachgeschoben:

»›Cant Keep Checking My Phone‹ is about missing somebody and that point where you refuse to accept online ›connectivity‹ as a substitute for being with someone IRL. When someone you love turns into text and ideas delivered through a device, at some point they’re competing with real things like the aurora borealis, which is another thing that only really makes sense in the flesh. I also read somewhere that the universe might be holographic, and in that case maybe the distance between us is just an illusion. So do you fall in love with the idea of someone? Or the chemicals they give off in person? Either way, I’ve got to get off my phone.«
