Warpaint - Heads Up (2015-2016)

8/2/16 6:45AM

The official track list is below along with preorders and the cover art. Gotta say, the Cover Art is kind of blah. Nothing special. But if the music is good, the cover means very little to me typically. And this 1st song "New Song" is very catchy and addictive, so I can't really make issue with it too much.

And given "New Song" like I said, is really addictive and catchy, I do have optimism for this album. Their last record I never got fully into, but that single they released last year "No Way Out / I'll Start Believing" was a lot more my speed, so much so, it definitely re-energized my interest in Warpaint, so much so, I'm not all that surprised by how good this new single is.

Hopefully I feel the same about the rest of Heads Up, which comes out around the same time (and tour) as the new Local Natives album Sunlit Youth which I'm also equally excited about.

And the fact Local Natives and Warpaint are playing back-2-back nights the week after my wedding, the last week of September (which I have PTO already approved thankfully, lol)
