Mac DeMarco tackles meandering country rock on his new single, “All of Our Yesterdays.”
The Salad Days icon, he revealed in a press statement, had aimed to channel his love of seminal Britpop band Oasis, resulting in the genre-bending country surf single. A Bob Dylan-esque twang flits along the edge of DeMarco’s vocals without compromising the soft-spoken delivery the Canadian multi-instrumentalist is known for.
“This was the first song I wrote in the sequence of songs that appear on my new record,” DeMarco said. “Most of the rest of the songs were written in November right before we went on tour in Europe, but this one’s probably from about seven or eight months before that.”
“All of Our Yesterdays” is the latest track from DeMarco’s upcoming fourth album, Here Comes the Cowboy, due out May 10. The record marks his first venture under his solo label, the aptly named Mac’s Record Label, an exciting step forward for the self-produced musician.
