Perth music royalty Eskimo Joe has this morning confirmed the release of their new album ‘Wastelands’ (cover art pictured) through Inertia late next month.
The new long player, the band’s sixth, comes two years after the release of ‘Ghosts Of The Past’ and 12 years since their debut ‘Girl’ and follows on from their teasing of a new track called ‘Running Out Of Needs’ through their social media sites last week.
‘Wastelands’ is preceded by the single ‘Got What You Need’, which has dropped at digital retail today.
“We are all feeling really excited about finally getting this first song out there!” the band said in a statement. “It doesn’t sound like anything we’ve done before so we think people will be quite surprised by where we’ve headed. What the song is saying is when you’ve had a tough day don’t let all of that outside stuff get to you because when you get home and you’ve got the people you care about around you, that’s all you really need.”
‘Got What You Need’ (stream below) is out now, while ‘Wastelands’ will drop at retail on Friday September 20.
