Wild Pink have released their new single "You Can Have It Back", which lands as the second preview of their forthcoming third LP A Billion Little Lights.

"You Can Have It Back" follows last month's lead outing "The Shining But Tropical", and arrives with a video shot in Philadelphia at the abandoned Mount Moriah Cemetery.

The new track also features additional vocals from Ratboys' Julia Steiner.

Lead vocalist John Ross says of the song, "This was the last song I wrote for the album, and it’s also one of the most fun to play live. Wild Pink songs typically don't follow conventional song structures but with this one I did. Julia’s vocals totally make this song what it is, and I love Dan's harmonies in the choruses - I wrote it with the intention of having someone else sing it. but ended up just singing it myself. This song is inspired by Fleetwood Mac and, once again, "If I Needed You" by Townes Van Zandt (one of the greatest songs ever written). Special cameo by Computer the Dog."

A Billion Little Lights will be Wild Pink's first album since 2018's Yolk In The Fur.

The album was produced, mixed, and co-engineered by producer David Greenbaum (Beck, U2, Cage The Elephant). Ross wrote and arranged the songs, and recorded demos of the tracks over the space of a year from his home in New York’s Hudson Valley.

"You Can Have It Back" is out now. Wild Pink's A Billion Little Lights album will arrive via Royal Mountain Records on 19 February 2021, and is available to pre-order now.
