As we patiently await the release of Smith Westerns’ brand new album ‘Soft Will’ (the much anticipated follow-up to 2011’s Dye It Blonde), the band have offered up a stream of opening track ‘3am Spiritual’. It’s a total swoonfest, and is going to make you feel really good about the rest of your day.
You can now also pre-order ‘Soft Will’ via iTunes, which will also grant you immediate access to a digital download of ‘3am Spiritual’ — further pre-order options including CD, Vinyl, and t-shirt bundles will be available over the coming days.
Smith Westerns have released the first video from their forthcoming album “Soft Will” — the Alan Del Rio Ortiz-directed treatment for “Varsity” is basically a three-minute make-out session between up-and-coming model Marcel Castenmiller and his girlfriend Sara Powell. AND WHO WOULD COMPLAIN ABOUT WATCHING THAT?
“Soft Will” will be released via Mom+Pop on June 25.
