Download John Cale Has Returned With A New Single
Cast across a droning organ soundscape, Lazy Day has a dream-pop aesthetic and comes with trippy video directed by Abby Portner.
It marks the first new music from the Velvet Underground co-founder since his summer collaboration with Kelly Lee Owens on Corner Of My Sky. His last full-length was 2016’s ‘M:FANS’, a rework of his 1982 full-length ‘Music For A New Society’. Cale said:
“I was so ready to finally get my new album out; fits and starts and then damn 2020 happened! A lot to say in these times. Context is everything and 140 characters isn’t going to cut it! As a songwriter my truth is all tied-up in and through those songs that must wait a while longer.
And then it occurred to me that I do have something for the moment, a song I’d recently completed… With the world careening out of its orbit I wanted to stop the lurch and enjoy a period where we can take our time and breathe our way back into a calmer world.”
