Foxygen Share New Single, “Face The Facts”LISTEN NOW

Foxygen, the Los Angeles-based duo of Sam France and Jonathan Rado, share “Face The Facts” from their new album, Seeing Other People, due April 26th via Jagjaguwar. Following the brooding lead single “Livin’ A Lie,” “Face The Facts” is a synth-guitar earworm that gives a humorous take on becoming an irrelevant artist. France sings: “You’re never gonna be a famous rock n’ roller / now that it’s over/ face the facts.” The track features Kane Richotte on an all-snare drum drum set, Rob Moose (Bon Iver, Alabama Shakes) playing strings, and “Radotronics.”

Pre-order Seeing Other People

Seeing Other People is Foxygen’s most straightforward “goodbye” album yet; “Goodbye to the drugs, to the partying. Goodbye to my twenties now, Goodbye to my Saint Laurent-model-body. Goodbye to the touring circus — that’s right, no more shows or tours for a while. Goodbye, hopefully, to the anxiety attacks. Goodbye to beating myself up because I didn’t fit into those leather pants anymore. F**k it. Goodbye to the facilities. And goodbye the leeches in my life,” says France. See the full-length letter here. The album is filled with self-referential tales of touring, partying, of being young and in a band, and saying farewell to the grittier, darker aspects of it all. “I remember a quote from Rado sticking with the press a few years ago about how we’d lived every rock n roll cliche in, about, one year. Well, here’s the album about it.”

Written and produced entirely by Foxygen at Sonora Recorders in Los Feliz, CA and engineered and mixed by Shawn Everett, Seeing Other People presents Foxygen’s keen ability to experiment with and expand upon classic pop and rock sounds, “chopping up pop culture and spinning it into a sticky, wicked web.” The album features legendary drummer Jim Keltner.
