Washed Out has shared "Running Away" as the latest single from his forthcoming fifth studio album, Notes From a Quiet Life.

Following the previously released Notes From a Quiet Life, documentary that was shot earlier this year and Directed by Kristian Melom (“Dear, Dreamer” and “The River”), comes the new single “’Running Away’.

Washed Out’s Ernest Greene shares about the song: “Starting work on a new album often means a lot of failed experiments. Basically, I’m just waiting around until I stumble into something new that I can build an album concept around. For NFAQL, that song was “Running Away”. It had all of the ingredients that ended up shaping the aesthetic for the album: a more minimal arrangement, sonic clarity, and more of an emphasis on classic songwriting technique.”

Notes From a Quiet Life is set for release on 28 June, and is available to pre-order now from Sub Pop.
