The Districts Share New Single/Video “Outlaw Love” (Feat. Cherry Glazerr’s Clementine Creevy), New LP ‘Great American Painting’ Out 3/11/22 (Fat Possum)

The Districts today shared the third single from their forthcoming new album Great American Painting: the billowing, rhythmic “Outlaw Love,” which features backing vocals by Clementine Creevy of Cherry Glazerr. Out now alongside its Luke Orlando-directed video, the song “is about reassessing the past and realizing how much of your perception is colored by your particular set of experiences and beliefs. Who was right and who was wrong? Was it love or a web of lies?” says singer/guitarist Rob Grote. “Life is this weird, fucked up journey, constantly changing and constantly realizing you were wrong or followed a false messiah, but there’s a lot of beauty in our ability to shift and grow through observing ourselves and our patterns. I’ve been hurt by people I love and given more than I should at my own expense, but ultimately wouldn’t trade it for the lessons I’ve taken away from it all.” Great American Painting—the band’s fifth album, produced by Joe Chiccarelli (Spoon, The Strokes, Broken Social Scene) and recorded at the legendary Sunset Sound in Los Angeles—will be released on March 11th, 2022 (recently moved back from February due to manufacturing delays), via Fat Possum and is available for pre-order here.
