WATCH: Best Coast Announce New Album with “Everything Has Changed” Video
The duo’s fourth album, Always Tomorrow, drops February 21 via Concord Records.
It comes as no surprise that Best Coast have a new record in the works, or that everything has changed for the band since making their presence known a decade ago with their sunny lo-fi debut Crazy for You. But today we’re getting official details on the band’s long-anticipated follow-up to 2015’s California Nights with the release of a new track, “Everything Has Changed.” Arriving shortly after Always Tomorrow’s first single, “For the First Time,” “Changed” echoes the themes of self-restoration over notably more aggressive grunge instrumentation.
Bethany Cosentino cites “Changed” as the song that brought her out of a creative rut following their 2015 LP, writing the song after locking herself in her closet and dreaming of a better life for herself—a dream that ultimately became a reality. “Always Tomorrow is the story of where I was and where I am now, as well as the struggles I am still learning to identify and figure out,” she explained of the new album in a press statement. “This album is about leaving the darkness for the light, but still understanding that nothing is ever going to be perfect. It’s about burning it all down and starting from scratch even when the idea of that is fucking terrifying. Closing one chapter and moving onto the next even when you have no idea what is on the other side. Acceptance. It’s about taking a gigantic leap of faith.”
The song arrives with a video featuring a few familiar faces for anyone hip to Vanderpump Rules—watch it below, and read on for Best Coast tour dates with support from Mannequin Pussy.
