Foxygen – “How Can You Really” Video + …And Star Power Details

Michael Nelson | July 30, 2014 - 3:36 pm

Foxygen spent much of last year dealing with a whole lot of drama, which at times overshadowed the actual album they released, We Are The 21st Century Ambassadors Of Peace & Magic. Now they’ve announced a follow-up, a 24-song collection that will be titled …And Star Power. The promotional image above promises it will have “a gaggle of guest stars.” And with the announcement they’ve given us the album’s first single and Grant Singer-directed video. “How Can You Really” is a totally excellent bit of Cali psych pop bursting with joyous melodies that will engulf you in sweetness and light. Check it out below, with album details below that.
