We’ve been enjoying Dum Dum Girls’ Richard Gottehrer-produced I Will Be, most recently via the new version of old favorite “Jail La La” that appears on the album proper and a single backed by a cover of the Rolling Stones’ “Play With Fire.” As far as other I Will extras: Folks pre-ordering the full-length receive a copy of the self-titled five-song EP, originally released by Dee Dee and Brandon Welchez’s Zoo Music in a limited edition of 100 or so copies. One of our EP favorites is “D.A.L.,” aka “Dream Away Life,” aka the perfect song for when you find yourself awake at 3:37 a.m. and need another ghost in the room.

The EP tracklist:

01 “Ship of Love”
02 “Longhair”
03 “D.A.L.”
04 “Catholicked”
05 “Hey Sis”

I Will Be is out 3/30 via Sub Pop/HoZac. If you order it via subpop.com, you’ll score the EP.  (If you don’t order it via the previous link, you won’t score the EP.) Catch DDG live:
