Legendary Chicago quartet The Sea and Cake are to return with a new album, their 12th, on May 11th. Titled Any Day, its out on the ever brilliant Thrill Jockey label, and sees the band return to their roots, delivering an album of beautiful, elegant and intimate pop songs. To that end, the band were joined on the recordings by Paul Von Mertens (a frequent collaborator with Brian Wilson) on flute and clarinet; and Nick Macri on double bass.
They’ve released a glimpse of the new record in the shape of the title track. It sits resplendent in it’s own laid back loveliness, with this timelessly and endlessly lovely melody that wraps you up, and the little slithers of woodwind at the end really just add a little extra sparkle to proceedings.
