BADBADNOTGOOD share new single ‘Beside April’, announce tour dates

The experimental trio's new album, 'Talk Memory', arrives next month

BADBADNOTGOOD have shared a new single, ‘Beside April’, in the lead-up to their new album’s arrival later this year.

The new track was co-written with esteemed Brazilian composer Arthur Verocai, and features drummer Karriem Riggins. A bizarre accompanying music video, directed by Camille Summers-Valli, was inspired by Horse in Motion 1878, the first ever film footage.

Watch the clip for ‘Beside April’ below:


‘Beside April’ is lifted from the band’s forthcoming album ‘Talk Memory’, due out October 8 through XL/Innovative Leisure. The new track follows on from their lead single, ‘Signal From The Noise’, released back in July.

As well as Verocai and Riggins, the nine-track album includes contributions from Terrace Martin, Laraaji, and harpist Brandee Younger, who has worked with Moses Sumney and Thundercat.

“It took a year or two of just living life to get to the place where the creative process was exciting again and once we actually went in to the studio it was the most concise recording and writing process we’ve ever had,” the band said of the album.

“We hope that the improvised studio performances bring the listener closer to our live experience.”

In addition to the new single, the trio have announced a list of North American, European and UK tour dates, kicking off this December and spread over the course of 2022. Tickets go on sale September 17 from 10am local time.
