Chromatics – “Teacher”

Chromatics – “Teacher”

Chromatics have been pretty good to us so far this year, all things considered. We’ve gotten two new songs, “Toy” and “new Desire single and a really great Johnny Jewel Angel Olsen remix.

Today, Chromatics are releasing another new single called “Teacher.” Interestingly enough, the single artwork mirrors the Dear Tommy artwork that we saw way the heck back in 2014 and the song’s official YouTube video contains a tracklist for Dear Tommy that is different from what we’ve seen previously. So it looks like Dear Tommy is officially back on, after last year’s Closer To Grey detour, though no release date has been shared just yet.

For now, “Teacher” is here. You can listen to it below, along with the tracklisting and an ambiguous statement from Johnny Jewel. .

The apple obscured in fog is enigmatic & open to the interpretation of the viewer. Are we sinking into the unknown or rising from beyond the grave? An apple a day keeps the doctor away & music is the medicine. Our teachers transfer knowledge of good & evil. From the fairytale of Snow White’s endless sleep to the Garden of Eden in the book of Genesis, exposure is the agent of change. Music is a language communicated by the artist but ultimately defined by the listener’s own exposure to sound throughout their life time. I can’t change my past, but I can choose to break the cycle & not pass the poison apple I was fed to my daughter. “

Goodbye Teacher.
School’s out forever.

- Johnny Jewel
