Out March 4, YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE is Nada Surf’s eighth record and fifth for Barsuk. It was produced by long-time comrade Tom Beaujour at Nuthouse Recording n Hoboken, NJ, and marks the band’s first as an official quartet with the core unit – singer/ songwriter/guitarist Matthew Caws, bassist Daniel Lorca and drummer Ira Elliot – joined by Doug Gillard on guitar. Fans can pre-order the record now.
The band recently released the first video from YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE. The euphoric clip for the album’s first single, “Cold To See Clear,” was directed by Spencer Gentz and depicts a typical corporate office meeting being transformed into joyful mayhem. It was appropriately premiered by the Wall Street Journal. They will be performing “Cold To See Clear” on Late Night with Seth Meyers on Monday, February 29th.
“Cold To See Clear” is already getting traction across the country at stations like KEXP, WFUV, KCRW, KCSN and more. The band premiered the album track “Believe You’re Mine” with the announcement of the forthcoming release of YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE last month on KEXP‘s John In The Morning and Morning Becomes Eclectic on KCRW simultaneously. The track shot to the top of the HypeMachine charts, was picked up by influential blogs like STEREOGUM and BROOKLYN VEGAN and was playlisted by MOJO who said “swooning with melody, this ‘up’ heartbreaker from the band’s forthcoming You Know Who You Arealbum charms as it mines emotional voids.”
