Best Coast unveil punchy new track "Different Light"

05 February 2020, 12:26 | Written by Cerys Kenneally

Best Coast are back with punchy new track "Different Light", the third single to be lifted from their first album in five years, Always Tomorrow.

"Different Light" is the opening track from Best Coast's new album, and lands after previous singles "Everything Has Changed" and "For The First Time".

Always Tomorrow will be Best Coast's first LP since 2015's California Nights.

Speaking about the new single, vocalist Bethany Cosentino says, "After we finished the album cycle for California Nights, something terrifying happened to me. I felt creatively paralyzed. I couldn’t write music. There was so much bubbling inside of me, so many things happening, so much to process, but I couldn’t get any of it out. I was miserable and felt like nothing was ever going to change. One day, I locked myself in my closet and I forced myself to write, and out came "Everything Has Changed." The song was like a vision of life I wished I was living; ultimately, that song was prophetic -- describing the life I would soon be living."

Cosentino adds of the album, "Always Tomorrow is the story of where I was and where I am now, as well as the struggles I am still learning to identify and figure out. Some days I wake up and I feel like I’m on top of the world and I forget about everything that’s ever bummed me out, and other days, it all comes flooding back. This album is about leaving the darkness for the light, but still understanding that nothing is ever going to be perfect. It’s about burning it all down and starting from scratch even when the idea of that is fucking terrifying. Closing one chapter and moving onto the next even when you have no idea what is on the other side. Acceptance. It’s about taking a gigantic leap of faith."

"Different Light" is out now. Best Coast's Always Tomorrow album arrives 21 February via Concord Records, and is available to pre-order now.
