Best Coast stream mini album ‘Fade Away’ – listen

The duo will release their third full-length album in the spring of next year

Best Coast are streaming their new mini album ‘Fade Away’.

Click below to listen to the seven track EP, which is the first release to come out on Best Coast frontwoman Bethany Cosentino’s own Jewel City label on October 21. The release acts as a primer for the band’s third album. Best Coast are due to start recording the follow up to 2012’s ‘The Only Place’ in November ahead of a Spring 2014 release.

Speaking about the songs on ‘Fade Away’, Cosentino says: “Everything in this band has worked out so organically that sometimes it scares me that something bad is going to happen. I don’t even understand why this is happening. I made some songs, I put them up on the internet, and here I am now. I feel like the luckiest person in the world. If I wasn’t doing this, I don’t know what I would be doing.”


Ricky Cosentino, Bethany Cosentino’s father, plays drums on tracks ‘Fear Of My Identity’ and ‘Who Have I Become’, which were first released as a double A-Side single in April. Tweeting about her Dad at the time, Cosentino wrote: “My Dad, Ricky Cosentino played drums on the record store day 7″ !!! Was so fun to have him on these songs.”

Best Coast released their second album, ‘The Only Place’, last year. It followed 2010’s ‘Crazy For You’.

The ‘Fade Away’ tracklist is as follows:

‘This Lonely Morning’
‘I Wanna Know’
‘Who Have I Become
‘Fear Of My Identity’
‘Fade Away’
‘Baby I’m Crying’
‘I Don’t Know How’
