Nada Surf has announced today’s premiere of “Looking For You,” from their long-awaited new LP, NEVER NOT TOGETHER. The track is available for streaming and download now; an official video is streaming HERE. Nada Surf’s ninth studio recording and first in almost four years NEVER NOT TOGETHER arrives via Barsuk on February 7. Pre-orders are available now.
“‘Looking For You’ is about an old idea,” says Nada Surf’s Matthew Caws, “that what you seek is seeking you. The Persian poet Rumi wrote it down in the 13th century, but it was new to me when I came across it last year in something I read. I’ve found it to be true in practice: so often when I’ve said yes to an invitation that I was hesitating about for whatever reason, I’ve been glad afterwards. There’s always a great conversation I wouldn’t have had, a good idea that wouldn’t have come up. The song is also about learning to differentiate between real and imagined danger. One of the best questions I’ve ever been asked is How many tigers are lunging at you right now? Thankfully, the answer has always been none. That line made it into the song too.”
NEVER NOT TOGETHER was heralded last month by the crashing new single “Something I Should Do,” which is now available for streaming and download. The single was accompanied by an official video.
Nada Surf will also cross the Atlantic for an eagerly awaited European tour, resuming in Cambridge, England’s J2 on February 25. The tour includes stops in the United Kingdom, Germany, Spain, Ireland, the Netherlands, Belgium, Austria, Italy, Switzerland, Sweden, Norway, and Denmark. Additional dates – including top-billed festival appearances – will be announced soon. For complete tour details and ticket information, please visit www.nadasurf.com.
