With a few days left until the release of his new album, Bryce Avary, aka The Rocket Summer, is giving fans the chance to stream the new record in full. On Wednesday (Feb. 24), the musician teamed up with Entertainment Weekly to stream Zoetic in its entirety a couple of days early. The new record features previously released songs “UNI,” “Cold War,” and lead single “Same Air.” In conjunction with the ahead-of-time stream, Avary sat down with the publication to answer a few questions.
As it turns out, this record might be the “hardest” album the act has put out. “There wasn’t much thought of, ‘Is this a Rocket Summer album?’ when I was making it. I pushed myself to do something I never would have done in the past.”
In addition to that, Avary also revealed that there’s a lot more music where that came from and even teased that a companion album to the impending record may happen in the future. According to Avary, there were 30 to 40 songs that didn’t make the album. Listen to the songs that did make it on the album below.
Zoetic is set be released on Friday, Feb. 26 through Aviate Records. In support of the new release, The Rocket Summer will be hitting the road with Farro to tour behind the album. The complete list of upcoming tour dates can be seen here. Zoetic is the follow-up to The Rocket Summer’s 2012 release, Life Will Write The Words.
