Wild Nothing–the brainchild of Jack Tatum–will return for a third album since their 2010 Gemini debut. Wild Nothing’s Life of Pause arrives on February 29 on Captured Tracks. The album is available to pre-order here.
Wild Nothing already shared album tracks “TV Queen” and “To Know You” as a joint video. New Life of Pause track “Reichpop” arrived today. Jack Tatum said that he’s constantly working to change things up and this album is no departure. “Reichpop” offers a variety of next textures. Here’s what Tatum said regarding Life of Pause:
I desperately wanted for this to be the kind of record that would displace me. I’m terrified by the idea of being any one thing, or being of any one genre. And whether or not I accomplish that, I know that my only hope of getting there is to constantly reinvent. That reinvention doesn’t need to be drastic, but every new record has to have it’s own identity, and it has to have a separate set of goals from what came before … There’s definitely a different kind of ‘self’ in the picture this time around. There’s no real love lost, it’s much more a record of coming to terms and defining what it is that you have — your place, your relationships. I view every record as an opportunity to write better songs. At the end of the day it still sounds like me, just new.
