Wye Oak was commissioned to write and record a brand new song for the 2012 Adult Swim Singles Program. This year’s program has been expanded to include 12 consecutive weeks (that’s all summer!) with a new exclusive track debuting every Monday. The 2012 Adult Swim Singles Program will be featured at AdultSwim.com/singles from June 18 – September 9 and will include all-new, never-before-released tracks from Wavves, Flying Lotus, Death Grips, Elite Gymnastics, The Field, etc.
NPR’s All Songs Considered premiered the stream of Wye Oak‘s new song “Spiral” today saying, “Virtually everything about “Spiral” departs from Wye Oak’s sound: the programmed beats, the clean guitar tones, the echo effects on Wasner’s vocal, the chugging pace. For fans of Civilian, it might be a jarring departure, but “Spiral” is a grower — all the more sinister for the surprises it doles out.”
Wye Oak will hit the road in July opening for the Dirty Projectors and have announced new headlining dates this fall with more to come.
