American Football has released two songs off their upcoming self titled album, their first project in 17 years. The track list via Pitchfork is below. The album is out October 21, and there a fair amount of accompanying tour dates, below. (Well, a fair amount for a band that’s been AWOL for (oh, I don’t know, so long???) 17 years.)
The first song is ‘I’ve Been Lost For So Long’ and honestly though it’s a great song, I can’t resist the jokes. Yeah. You have been lost for so long. 17 years long. But laughs aside, it’s catchy and beautiful and holds a lot of promise for the new album. Cliff notes? They’ve still got it.
The second song released is ‘Give Me the Gun’ and it’s quite good as well, soft and haunting, with the elements that you’d expect from them, after their older work.
