Previously, the band have released Dinosaur Jr collaborative track ‘In A Drawer’ and a lyric video for song ‘Casual Party’. ‘Whatever, Wherever’ was announced as Zane Lowe’s World Record yesterday (June 2).
The video features the band members, their friends and family. The band can be seen rehearsing in what looks to be a home studio, with footage of frontman Ben Bridwell’s children as well as some shots of a garden party.
Last month (May 18) Band Of Horses performed two new songs on Colbert showcasing new material from the new record. The band treated the audience to a performance of ‘Casual Party’ and as a bonus treat for online audiences, they showcased LP track ‘In a Drawer’.
‘Why Are You Ok’ is the band’s first album since 2012’s ‘Mirage Rock’. In an interview with Entertainment Weekly confirming the album, Bridwell said: “I didn’t have the opportunity, like I used to, to kind of squirrel away in some cabin or a beach house.
“I just put up some soundproofing – tried to keep the moisture out and the sound waves in. It’s nothing special by any means, but it was a nice place to be able to complain loudly with minimal influence of ears listening to me.” You can watch ‘Whatever, Wherever’ below.
