Mac DeMarco has released a new preview track from his upcoming full-length; ‘All Of Our Yesterdays’ is taken from ‘Here Comes The Cowboy’, due out on 10th May.
“This was the first song I wrote in the sequence of songs that appear on my new record,” he says. “Most of the rest of the songs were written in November right before we went on tour in Europe, but this one’s probably from about seven or eight months before that. I left it sitting with only one verse done for a long time, then finished it up while I was writing the rest of the record.
“The phrase ‘all of our yesterdays’ comes from the play Macbeth. Also I think there’s a Star Trek episode from 1969 with the same title; very cool. I had just seen a documentary about Oasis before writing this song, and I was trying to write a gigantic rock and roll hit with my renewed love for the band. I didn’t really get close to that at all, but I’m happy with the song that came out hahahahaha.”
Mac’s coming to the UK this June in support of the release, which includes co-curating an all-dayer at Margate amusement park Dreamland on 29th June.
