Today Brooklyn-based band TEEN – comprised of sisters Teeny, Lizzie, and Katherine Lieberson – announces its fourth studio album Good Fruit. Out on March 1st, 2019 via lifelong label Carpark, and the band’s first self-produced record, Good Fruit is a remarkable and bold statement on moving forward and letting go of the past. Pre-order the album HERE, and see below for album art and track listing.
To celebrate the announcement of their album, TEEN shares the record’s first single “Only Water,” a glistening and deceptively upbeat number about death and the loss of a loved one. “‘Only Water’ tells the story of my experience of my father’s sickness and death,” explainsTeeny.” “It explores the final moments that I had with him, as well as the processing of the loss of a parent. As it has been many years since his death, my relationship to losing him has changed. I have been thinking a lot about the idea of possession and how it can even exist once someone has died. The song questions this principle; if we are all water, can’t I have you? Can I be you? Which in, abstractly, is a celebration of letting go. The freedom within oneness as well as nothingness.” Listen to the track and watch the stunning and cinematic music video, shot in the band’s native Nova Scotia, Canada via NPR Music HERE.
TEEN will be on tour with 4AD’s Methyl Ethel next year, as well as playing a hometown show atBrooklyn’s Baby’s All Right in January and making appearances at SXSW in Austin, TX. See below to find a show near you, get your tickets HERE and stay tuned for more dates coming soon.
