Good Morning Announce New Album ‘Barnyard’ and Share New Single

Melbourne duo Good Morning have announced their new album Barnyard will be released via Polyvinyl in October.

The news arrives alongside new single ‘Country’, a warm introspective cut which sees the band’s Liam Blair singing above a layered collage of guitars and synths, underscored by driving polyrhythms.

“I’m still not sure if I’m singing to old friends, an old lover or my old self. I think probably all three. At the time, I was having a rough one reconciling my life with what I had expected adult life to be,” commented Blair in an accompanying statement.

“I knew that my younger self – a more virtuous, kind-hearted and patient person – would be perplexed by how I had turned out, and I felt a kind of second-hand embarrassment for myself looking over the last few years of false starts and dead ends. This song is an attempt from me to reconnect with my younger self as well as some key ghosts from my past and to move forward by looking back – pretty futile stuff really.”

‘Country’ arrives alongside a video directed by Aidan McDonald that sees the band joined by members of local acts Cool Sounds and Skydeck. Watch that below. Barnyard is scheduled for release on Friday, 22nd October – pre-orders are available here.
