BIG SOMETHING interview
How’s it going?
You guys just put out a new single, tell us about that!
-Ben: Tumbleweed? Or is this for…
Ben: We’re super excited about it. It’s the title track off our new album. It’s the first album we did in a big professional studio.
Nick: I feel like all of our social media posts have been just like, Tumbleweed, #Tumbleweed, new single Tumbleweed off our new album Tumbleweed, #Tumbleweed. If you didn’t know about it, Tumbleweed is coming out.
Ben: But yeah, we’re pumped. I think it’s the best thing we’ve put out to date and we’re ready to put it out there, get behind it, and tour. Let people listen to it, finally.
Nick: Tumbleweed, Tumbleweed, Tumbleweed.
Can we expect a video any time soon?
Ben: Oh, I don’t know about that.
Nick: Yeah, but not like a traditional music video. We’ll probably put together spliced clips and stuff, but yeah.
Anything about the upcoming album?
Nick: It’s 8 songs that we’ve been performing over the past two years and we recorded it at Echo Mountain Studios in Asheville, North Carolina. I feel like it’s some of our best music that we’ve ever written and recorded. So I think everybody’s really excited about it finally – get it out there into the world and see the response we can get from it – see what people think about it.
Will it be available on vinyl?
Nick: Yes. But on record store day in April. The vinyl will be a couple months later.
