Having already revealed the first track "Wheel Of Fortune" along with the EP announcement last month, "You Always Win" is the second, and final feature track to be unveiled.
The Breeders' Kelley Deal explained her involvement a bit further, "I listened to Protomartyr’s demo for ‘You Always Win’ and thought of Sinatra and old Las Vegas. The band were into it, so Mike Montgomery and I worked with Lori Goldston (cello), Jocelyn Hach (viola) and Evan Ziporyn (bass clarinet) to create the sound of candy-coated corruption for Joe’s characters to inhabit. “It’s what I must do”.”
Joey Casey of Protomartyr goes into more detail on their new track, "'You Always Win’ is the last song on our EP. That reminds me of three things. First; "good things come to those that wait". I think that's what is called an adage. I don't know if waiting through three other quality songs counts, but I think it might."
"Second; this quote: “I did not get my Spaghetti-O’s; I got spaghetti. I want the press to know this.” That's the last words of some murderer, apparently. I think that means this song could have been something out of a can. Sure, murderers would have liked it fine but this is good, musical spaghetti. And the reason it's spaghetti brings me to my third thought: Kelley Deal made this song great. It could have been flat circles in tomato gravy. Kelley, in her genius, elevated it to the thing you are hearing now. Beautiful sound pasta? I suppose.”
