Wye Oak (Jenn Wasner and Andy Stack) released a new album, The Louder I Call, the Faster It Runs, back in April 2018 via Merge. (It was our Album of the Week and one of our Top 100 Albums of 2018.) Now they have shared a brand new song, "Evergreen," via the Adult Swim Singles series. Listen below.

In a press release Wasner says that "the song was made in an attempt to work a little differently- to 'try softer,' as my brilliant friend Lexie Mountain advised me."

A press release also says the song "represents overcoming a physically and emotionally exhausting period of self-doubt."

Wasner adds: "I understand intellectually that I have worth and value just by existing- that everyone does, but I'm beginning to realize that having an intellectual understanding doesn't mean you've integrated that shit into your heart and mind and unconscious beliefs. Maybe I'll never get there, but just trying (not too hard!) feels better than nothing at all. So it's a start. Hope you enjoy."

Just earlier this week Wasner teamed up with Madeline Kenney (whose 2018 album Perfect Shapes she produced) to release a split 7-inch via her Flock of Dimes solo alias. Wasner contributed "The Sisters," whereas Kenney's song was entitled "Helpless."

Wye Oak are performing at Merge's 30th anniversary festival in July.

True… just because you “know” something doesn’t really mean you understand it as truth, or that it’s a part of you. Smart dude.
