Proper. have released their new single, ‘Huerta’.

The track drop precedes the release of their upcoming album ‘The Great American Novel’, out 25th March via Father/Daughter (US) and Big Scary Monsters (UK), and a tour that kicks off on 4th April in Leeds.

Lead singer Erik Garlington says of the track: “We’re coming up on our third album and I realized I hadn’t written about my Mexican heritage at all. My grandfather immigrated to the US in 50s but died before I was born, cutting off the only tie my family has to Mexico. I grew up romanticizing it and it wasn’t until I was older, when my mom and her siblings spoke out about their dad without the filter one uses when speaking around children, that I began to critically examine what heritage and lineage meant. ‘Huerta’ is about looking at the least traveled part of your personality and day dreaming about the possibility.”
