With less than a month left until the release of their new studio album, Copeland have returned with yet another new song from the upcoming release. On Friday (Jan. 18), the Florida-founded band debuted their latest single, “Lay Here.”
Taking to social media on Thursday (Jan 17), Copeland frontman Aaron Marsh revealed the news to his followers. “New Copeland song drops tonight at midnight,” the singer’s straight-to-the-point message reads. Listen to the dreamily mellow four-minute track above.
“Lay Here” will join previously released singles “Night Figures” and “On Your Worst Day” on their forthcoming sixth studio album, Blushing. Blushing is due out Feb. 14 via Tooth & Nail Records. Pre-orders for Blushing are currently available on the band’s website.
Blushing is the follow-up to the band’s 2014 release, Ixora.
Back in December, Marsh was asked what fans should expect, sonically, from Blushing. According to the musician, the band decided they were going to take all their preconceived sounds and elevate them to the next level.
“We wanted to take all of the elements that made up our sound in the past and push those elements farther,” says Marsh.
He continues: “So, rock becomes more rock than we’ve been in the past. If we’ve taken elements of symphonic tones, let’s now be very symphonic. When we’re being electronic, be very electronic. We wanted to emphasize each element of sound harder, like an exaggerated version of Copeland‘s sound. We could be each thing individually by pushing each facet of our art in a more focused way.”
In support of Copeland’s new album, the band previously announced plans to hit the North American touring circuit during the months of February, March, and April. The impending tour will begin on Feb. 8 at Barracuda in Austin and conclude a little over two months later on April 19 at Union Stage in Washington, D.C.
From Indian Lakes and Many Rooms will hit the road alongside Copeland throughout the full excursion. The full list of tour dates can be found below.
