Today Minneapolis’ Hippo Campus release their first new material since last year’swarm glow EP. The standalone-single, “Passenger,” is a pensive, slow-burning indie pop gem. Produced by regular-collaborator BJ Burton (Bon Iver, Sylvan Esso, Francis & The Lights), the song borrows from the more serene and deliberate moments of 2017’slandmark, while showcasing the band’s ever-increasing knack for soaring melody and dynamics.


“Passenger was written in the winter of 2017 after the first four months of touring on landmark,” says singer/guitarist Jake Luppen. “Lyrically the themes deal with the challenges of growing alongside the person you love. For this song in particular I tried to challenge myself to write a more complex chord progression to sing to. I started off with a TR-8 groove and the rest followed pretty naturally.”

Release Date: June 12th, 2018
It’s fitting the single was written after a stint on the road, as its release heralds another touring announcement: a massive run across the United States in some of the biggest rooms the band has ever played. Indeed, Hippo Campus will be stopping at Terminal 5 in New York City, The Riv in Chicago, Stubbs in Austin, TX and so many more iconic venues that dot the US. They will be joined by special guests The Districts each night. Tickets go on sale this Friday.
