The Monkees – “You Bring The Summer” (Written By XTC’s Andy Partridge)
The Monkees are returning later this month with Good Times!, their first new album in 20 years and their first since the death of original member Davy Jones. They enlisted Fountains Of Wayne frontman Adam Schlesinger to produce the LP, and it features songwriting contributions from the likes of Noel Gallagher and Death Cab For Cutie’s Ben Gibbard. We’ve heard the Rivers Cuomo-penned lead single “She Makes Me Laugh,” and tonight, the Monkees have shared another new one, “You Bring The Summer,” a ray of sparkling psych-pop sunshine written by XTC’s Andy Partridge. Listen below.
Good Times! is out 5/27 on Rhino.
