Wye Oak have announced details of their fifth album, ‘The Louder I Call, The Faster It Runs’ for release on April 6th via Merge Records. The release will be accompanied by extensive tour dates including a UK run in May.

We’ve already been treated to the title track from the new album, a coil of anxiety and exuberance, its verses and chorus sweeping into cascades of magnetic harmony. By the time the song ends, it has bloomed into an irresistible pop gem, a spell to be shouted against the ills of our world.

Wye Oak’s Jenn Wasner and Andy Stack flew to one another’s cities—she in Durham, North Carolina, he in Marfa, Texas—for a week or so at a time, hunkering in home studios to sort through and combine their separate song sketches. These shorter stints together produced less second-guessing and hesitation in their process, yielding an unabashed and unapologetic Wye Oak.

A unique pop triumph, with hookworm melodies that wrap around you and draw you into the Wye Oak way. The title track from the album sows the seed of what we can expect from their new album, with ‘The Louder I Call, The Faster It Runs‘ acting as a testament to Wye Oak’s latest material.

It’s wearing the Track Of The Week title with pride, listen in below:
