Superchunk will release their 12th album, Wild Loneliness, on February 25 via Merge. Made during lockdown at their North Carolina home, the album features a number of guest appearances, including Sharon Van Etten, R.E.M.’s Mike Mills, Wye Oak’s Andy Stack, Camera Obscura's Tracyanne Campbell, Owen Pallett, Kelly Pratt, and Franklin Bruno.
The first single off the album is "Endless Summer," which works climate crisis fears into a very catchy power-pop song featuring harmony vocals from Teenage Fanclub's Norman Blake and Raymond McGinley. “'Endless Summer' was written on New Year’s Day 2020 which was unseasonably warm here in North Carolina," says frontman Mac McCaughan. "Of course, by the time we recorded it, 'endless summer' had other meanings." The song is also out as a 7" single now featuring a cover of The Glands’ “When I Laugh," featuring William Tyler on guitar, on the b-side. You can watch the lyric video for "Endless Summer" below.
