MIDDLE KIDS Announce New EP ‘New Songs For Old Problems’ + Share New Single

Today, Australian trio Middle Kids (Hannah Joy, Harry Day and Tim Fitz) announce that they will release a six-track EP entitled New Songs For Old Problems on May 24th, 2019, through Domino. To celebrate the announcement, the band have shared a new single and video, “Real Thing.” A soaring anthemic track, “Real Thing” ruminates on our “lifelong quest for meaning”, says Hannah. “It’s the quiet, persistent voice in the stillness that constantly checks to see if you truly think you’ve found the thing you’re looking for.” Watch the Marie Pangaud-directed clip now.

The EP, recorded at the band’s own studio in Sydney and produced by Tim Fitz, follows hot on the heels of what was a massive 2018 for Middle Kids with the release of their critically acclaimed debut album Lost Friends. The band toured the world and performed on several US TV shows, including Jimmy Kimmel Live and The Late Late Show with James Corden.

Middle Kids are back in the US this spring and will join Local Natives on a major North American tour. All dates listed below.

New Songs For Old Problems will be released on May 24th through Domino. It is available to pre-order now on limited pressing clear vinyl, CD, and digital download.
