Speedy Ortiz share second single from “Foiled Again”

May 13, 2016 12:41 pm

Speedy Ortiz shared the second single from their forthcoming EP Foiled Again. The track is the first of two remixes of their previously released “Puffer” which features Lizzo & Doomtree’s Lazerbeak. Stream it now via Earmilk.

Sadie Dupuis on the track: “I was really into the album Lizzobangers, so we hit up Lizzo and Lazerbeak about collaborating in some way, even though we hadn’t met IRL. After this remix was in the works, Speedy toured with Doomtree (who taught Mike [Speedy’s drummer] how to shotgun a beer), and Lizzo and I wrote and recorded the song ‘Basement Queens’ together in December. So in a way this remix was the catalyst for that tour as well as the song.”

Foiled Again is out June 3rd. Pre-orders are available now in the Carpark shop and iTunes.

Speedy Ortiz announce “Foiled Again” EP + share first single

May 9, 2016 9:17 am

Very happy to announce that Speedy Ortiz is back with a new EP, Foiled Again, out June 3rd. The digital-only 4-track release is an addendum to 2015’s critically acclaimed Foil Deer featuring two outtakes, Death Note,” which premiered this weekend via Sirius XMU, and “Emma O”. It also includes two remixes of Foil Deer’s “Puffer.” Pre-orders are available now in
the Carpark shop and iTunes.

Frontwoman Sadie Dupuis on the first single: “‘Death Note’ is named after the anime, which is about an evil supernatural notebook that causes the death of anyone whose name is written inside of it. The song is about writing through your depression as a way to get better, and how in that way a death note can be kind of love letter to yourself.”
