Wild Pink are back with their first outing of 2021 "Oversharers Anonymous", which will appear on their upcoming album A Billion Little Lights.
Wild Pink's John Ross says of the track, "This is one of the first songs I wrote for A Billion Little Lights and was inspired, among many things, by Ken Burns' The West and the book The Earth Is Weeping by Peter Cozzens. Also inspired by a drive on the Taconic Parkway. Recording everyone’s parts on the outro was one of my favorite parts of making this album. Libby Weitnauer and Sarah Williams Larsen’s violin playing was incredible. This song, in part, is loosely about the confusing nature of social media and also about how close the distant past actually is to us. I knew early on when making this album that I wanted to have more places for instrumental parts and nearly half this song is instrumental."
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.
