Ball Park Music have announced their seventh studio album, ‘Weirder & Weirder’, will arrive in June.
The Brisbane indie-pop band shared the news on social media yesterday (February 14), alongside its cover art and a screenshot of a typed letter confirming the follow-up to their self-titled 2020 album will be released on June 3, 2022.
“For more than a year we danced and dodged, fought and flirted with this music,” the note read.
“Sometimes we had focused, frenzied periods of intense work; recordings popped up like daisies every which way you looked. Other times we thawed; the soft, slow heartbeat of the process swinging us far and wide with self-doubt.”
Hidden behind the note are details of a prospective tour, with partially-visible dates and cities listed. Take a look at the cover art and the full letter below:
At the time of its release, Cromack described ‘Sunscreen’ as a “patchwork” of various songwriting sessions. “From nowhere, and for no particular reason, you suddenly assemble a song from all these unrelated sketches that you haven’t been able to finish,” he explained.
“Songs like this always make me nervous because I get lured into thinking that perhaps they’re inauthentic; that there’s no theme or through-line. But songs like this are cool, they work in a mysterious way. Their fragmented lines come from all over your mind to congregate and share some special message that’s been dying to get out.”
