Futurebirds’ loose-limbed hazy twang has returned. Their new track, “Deadbeat Hits” is from their forthcoming third album, Hotel Parties. The album is due out Sept. 25 on Easy Sound Recording Company, which follows their 2013 release Baba Yaga. According to The Wall Street Journal, frontman Carter King dubs the tune, ”[A] little bit of satire about the desire to record a smash hit, get treated like gods, and start acting like [expletive].” In any case, we’ll stick to your theories. There’s nothing wrong with a little bit of honest mockery. Watch the video for “Deadbeat Hits” above, and check out their tour dates below.
