On ‘The Curse’, Yellow Days croons: “I been living in a state of fear/ I been fearing the world/ It’s ’bout time I broke out this funk, uh/ ‘Bout time I lift this curse.

Last week, Mac DeMarco shared a new album compiling early demo versions of tracks from his most recent album, 2019’s ‘Here Comes the Cowboy’.

The new collection includes demo versions for each of the album’s 14 cuts, including the bonus track ‘The Cattleman’s Prayer’.

‘Here Comes the Cowboy Demos’ arrives via Mac’s Record Label. Another collection, fittingly titled ‘Other Here Comes the Cowboy Demos’, will be made available as a Record Store Day exclusive.

Meanwhile, in January, Mac DeMarco and friends threw a charity BBQ in Melbourne which raised $210,000 for bushfire relief. The money raised were donated to Wildlife Victoria and the Fire Relief Fund for First Nations Communities.
