Pink’s First New Solo Material Since His Acclaimed 2014 Album Pom Pom
Stream “Another Weekend” via SoundCloud; Pre-order “Another Weekend” 7-Inch Here

Ariel Pink today releases a new single, “Another Weekend,” via Mexican Summer. The track represents the Los Angeles-based artist’s first new material since his collaborative EP with Weyes Blood, Myths 002 (January 2017), and his first solo release since his 2014 prog-pop opus pom pom, to which Pitchfork gave a Best New Music designation, and which The New York Times described as “a delightful, typically schizophrenic collection: wickedly dark and funny one moment, sweet and sentimental the next, and at other times as gleefully unhinged as Pink has ever been.”

Stream “Another Weekend” via SoundCloud. The 7” single, whose B side is the song “Ode To The Goat (Thank You),” is available for pre-order here.

On the new track, Pink sets a serene but complex scene for the next chapter in his curious career. Encapsulating the lingering euphoria of a weekend gone regrettably over the edge, the song finds him whispering sweetly while speaking in morose volumes. It’s a dichotomy that has long characterized Pink’s pathos and body of work, which has navigated a staggeringly broad stylistic range and has remained both ambitious and playful throughout.

Pink has prolifically written, recorded and released his singular brand of pop music for well over two decades. With “Another Weekend,” he has returned to the setting of his first recordings: his bedroom. The song is a shimmering entry in his unrivaled canon.
