FAIRCHILD announce the release of their new single, So Long and Thank You, which is also the title track of their upcoming debut album.
The single was written shortly after guitarist Tim Voeten lost his father,Speaking of the track , Voeten states:
‘So Long and Thank You was written in different sections, by different members of the band, but with the same person in mind—my father. When I hear this song, of course I think about my Dad, but I also remember that it helped cement in me my love for making music with these people. During those long nights in the studio, I knew it was okay to not be okay. I’d show up with some half-baked idea and we’d have a few drinks and mess around with it. I never knew one of those half-baked ideas would become So Long and Thank You. There isn’t a single sound on this record that can’t simply be put down to enjoying writing music with your friends.’
FAIRCHILD’s debut album So Long and Thank You will be released on August 4th via their own label, Canvas Sounds.
