Foxygen, the duo of Sam France and Jonathan Rado, remain one of the more unique and compelling bands in music today. As they transition into the next phase of their lives, they are doing it with their unique vision and execution. Seeing Other People will be out on 4/26 via the fine folks at Jagjaguwar. Here’s some info from the PR squad.

Aptly named after the adult phrase “maybe we should see other people,” Seeing Other People is Foxygen’s most straightforward “goodbye” album yet; “Goodbye to the drugs, to the partying. Goodbye to my twenties now, Goodbye to my Saint Laurent-model-body. Goodbye to the touring circus — that’s right, no more shows or tours for a while. Goodbye, hopefully, to the anxiety attacks. Goodbye to beating myself up because I didn’t fit into those leather pants anymore. Fuck it. Goodbye to the facilities. And goodbye the leeches in my life,” says France

The album is filled with self-referential tales of touring, partying, of being young and in a band, and saying farewell to the grittier, darker aspects of it all. “I remember a quote from Rado sticking with the press a few years ago about how we’d lived every rock n roll cliche in, about, one year. Well, here’s the album about it. Another movie. I don’t know what’s next. But here’s a snapshot of it all.”
