Ty Segall – “Orange Color Queen”
In recent weeks Ty Segall has shared a heartfelt statement of perseverance after Donald Trump’s election and video of himself smashing a toilet with Steve Albini, and now he’s back to his usual routine of constantly releasing albums. The California garage-rock titan already put out a self-titled LP, his 2008 debut, but this January he’ll deliver another. News of the new Ty Segall arrives today along with a new song called “Orange Color Queen.” It’s on the softer side of the Segall spectrum, beginning as a gentle guitar ballad before blooming into an analog psych-pop symphony of sorts. Some background Segall shared with NPR:
This is a love song for my girlfriend, Denée. I’ve written her many, but I think this is my favorite. I travel around the world for a living and have developed a slight fear of flying. She’s one of the things that makes it better for me to travel. Especially when she is with me. She has orange hair, and is my orange color queen. I rarely write songs like this, because it is so easy to sound disingenuous, but I think this one is pretty good. Thanks for listening.
