JOHN VANDERSLICE Releases New Single “Will Call”

John Vanderslice is returning with his first album in six years, The Cedars, due out April 5, and today he shared a new single, “Will Call,” a song that he calls his biggest departure yet. Consequence of Sound premiered the track today, writing, “this new track uses slightly off kilter electronic elements to create a feeling that teeters between grace and anxiety. With The Cedars inspired by the natural beauty of Vanderslice’s land in Northern California, the slow pulsing sine waves rolling under scattered bells and keys translate the terrain into a hypnotic soundscape.” Vanderslice also shared his inspirations for the song, which include Sonoma and Los Angeles, and a couple of his current favorite artists, Spirit of the Beehive and JPEGMAFIA.


The Cedars is out April 5 and is available for pre-order digitally and on vinyl. John Vanderslice will be touring in support of the album this spring with Pedro The Lion and Meernaa. All dates are below and on sale now.
