New York City rock band The Dig have released the new song, “I Don’t Need You Anymore,” off their upcoming special edition LP, El Dig: A Year of Music.
The LP combines last month’s Moonlight Baby EP on side A with the forthcoming Afternoon With Caroline EP on side B and is due for release October 19, 2018 via Roll Call Records. According to Consequence of Sound, the EPs were recorded at Outlier Inn in upstate New York, produced by the band, and mixed by Andrew Sarlo (Big Thief, Nick Hakim) with Richard Swift (Nathaniel Ratliff, The Arcs).
Paste reports the LP packaging will include four double-sided inserts equaling eight interchangeable cover options based on artwork from each EP. The band says of the upcoming release, “If there’s one thing that ties the two EPs together it’s that all the songs are about moving. Moonlight Baby is about moving because you’re forced to. A sudden shift in your reality without any advanced notice or preparation.
“Afternoon With Caroline is about moving of your own free will. Chasing ambition, following your heart and breaking free of toxic situations…We’re also moving literally, across the US of A. Leaving NYC where we’ve lived for the entire life of the band, to a new home in sunny L.A.”
The Dig have previously released three studio albums including Electric Toys (2010), Midnight Flowers (2012) and Bloodshot Tokyo (2017).
The new song tackles “breaking free” with fresh hooks and an uplifting power-pop feel. Check out “I Don’t Need You Anymore” as well as the tracklist from the upcoming LP below.
