The Antlers have announced a new record, titled Green to Gold. The new album is set to be released on Mar. 26. Green to Gold marks The Antlers’ first record since 2014’s Familiars. The indie act has also shared a new single from the record, “Solstice,” along with a music video.
“’Solstice’ is a flashback to the infinite days of peak childhood summer, innocent barefoot hikes, staying outside all afternoon and late into the evening, well past it being too dark to see,” said lead singer/songwriter Peter Silberman (via press release). “But it’s remembered from the vantage of a present day that feels unbearably long rather than joyously endless. It’s an invocation of those simpler times, an attempt to conjure the lightness of youth, before life got so damn complicated.”
According to a press release, Green to Gold was “conceived and written almost entirely in the morning hours.” “I think this is the first album I’ve made that has no eeriness in it,” Silberman posits. “I set out to make Sunday morning music.
“Most of the songs on ‘Green to Gold’ are culled from conversations with my friends and my partner,” he continued. “It’s less ambiguous about who’s speaking and who’s listening.”
“I think the shift in tone is the result of getting older,” Silberman concluded. “It doesn’t make sense for me to try to tap into the same energy that I did ten or fifteen years ago, because I continue to grow as a person, as I’m sure our audience does too.”
