Following on from the release of Running Out Of Needs, the lead track from their forthcoming album Wasteland, Eskimo Joe have today dropped the second single from the release titled Got What You Need.
The differences between the two tracks are impossible not to notice. Where as Running Out Of Needs encompassed the time-tested sound of Eskimo Joe we’ve grown to know and love, Got What You Need sees the band pushing the boundaries of their soundscape further than ever before, immediately obvious with Kav’s stunning falsetto.
This seems to be a very deliberate move, with the band commenting:
“We are all feeling really excited about finally getting this first song out there! It doesn’t sound like anything we’ve done before so we think people will be quite surprised by where we’ve headed. What the song is saying is when you’ve had a tough day don’t let all of that outside stuff get to you because when you get home and you’ve got the people you care about around you, that’s all you really need.”
Wasteland will be released Friday, 20th September, after a highly successful crowdsourcing campaign which has been hot topic of discussion since its commencement. Got What You Need is available for purchase now.
