Aaron Maine is back with details of a new Porches album titled Ricky Music, which also arrives with the tender lead single "Do U Wanna".
Speaking about "Do U Wanna", Maine explains, ""Do U Wanna" is a song about looking at yourself and realisng the disparity between how you’d like to act and how you actually act. The fun you vs. the isolated you. I feel like with the refrain I’m almost taunting myself to get up and do something."
Ricky Music is Maine's first Porches album since 2018's The House, and will feature collaborations with Mitski, Zsela, and Dev Hynes.
Maine says of the new LP, "My new album, Ricky Music, was written and recorded between Dec 2017 and the spring of 2019. Mostly in New York at my apartment, but some of it in Chicago, Los Angeles, and various cities while touring around Europe. This record is an account of the beauty, confusion, anger, joy and sadness I experienced during that time. I think I was as lost as I was madly in love. In these songs I hear myself sometimes desperate for clarity, and other times, having enough perspective to laugh at myself in some of my darkest moments. That’s sort of what this album is about, I hope you enjoy it."
