Laura Jane Grace of Against Me! has just released a new song titled “Park Life Forever,” a track that lovingly captures her summer adventures with her daughter, Evelyn (who also sings on the track as well). Streaming now over on YouTube andSoundCloud, Grace had the following to share about the track:
“This past summer my daughter learned to ride a bike which was a lot of fun. Everyday we would wake up and ride our bikes to the park, and on the way we would stop and get coffee and lemonade. She would play on the playground for hours and I would read in the grass. Then we would eat ice cream. It was the best. As the summer was ending, I started working on this song. It’s been a long winter. I’m ready for summer again (I think everyone is), so I thought this would be a fun song to share with everyone and help usher in those summertime vibes!”
“Park Life Forever” was recorded with Spire, a portable, one-touch, professional-quality recording studio designed by iZotope, an acclaimed intelligent audio tech company based in Cambridge, MA.
Spire features an innovative, all-in-one design that provides artists with a handheld device that includes every tool needed to easily record, edit, mix and share their creative ideas, wherever they are. Using the free Spire app for iOS, tracks can easily be edited and mixed via iPhone or iPad, and effects such as reverbs and delays can be added to dial in a unique sound. Spire Studio connects to the app through a built-in wireless connection, which means it can be used anywhere from the basement to a desert island. After a song is finished, it can be shared wirelessly via text or email, or the individual instrument tracks can be exported into a studio setting (such as ProTools) so the session can be expanded on later.
Against Me! is currently working on the follow-up to their critically acclaimed studio album, 2016’s Shape Shift With Me, and more information will be released in the coming months.
