Multi-Hyphenate Bartees Strange Cements His Stardom, Once Again, on “Daily News”

Since releasing his debut record, Live Forever, in 2020, Bartees Strange has built himself into one of the most fascinating and talented rockstars in the world. His 2022 sophomore record, Farm to Table, was the perfect amalgamation of everything in his orbit, as he shapeshifted across a multitude of textures and themes, from hip-hop to sun-soaked indie glam. The Oklahoma-raised and Washington D.C.-based virtuoso’s music had hit its first apex. Strange populated Farm to Table with hair-raising, passionate concertos about his hometown of Mustang, Black pride and the ever-changing tides of heartache and self-love. It was a masterclass; a wall of sound fit for a king. 

Now, a bonus track from the physical release of Farm to Table is getting its day in the sun, hitting streaming services in a fury of immense, mythical proportions. “Daily News” is magical, heavy and perfect. From the shining guitars that ramble beneath Strange’s soulful vocals to the cascading breakdown of octaves and horns that round out the track, “Daily News” is further proof that few musicians in the world are as breathtaking, poised and magnetic as Strange, whose album leftovers carry as much power as his centerpieces.

Known for his electric, commanding stage presence, the sound Strange personifies on “Daily News” is a perfect teaser for his upcoming string of shows, which include stops at SXSW, Newport Folk Festival and the Re:SET summer concert series. Strange will also be opening for The National in the fall.
