The ever-prolific Ty Segall is releasing a new album, First Taste, August 2 via Drag City. Now he has shared another song from it, "Radio." Listen below, followed by Segall's upcoming tour dates.

Segall had this to say about the song in a press release: "'Radio' is a science non-fiction song. We live in a Cronenberg film. It has Videodrome saxoheadphones. I am a slave to the new radio and so are you."

The press release lays out the song's credits as such: "Koto by Segall, saxophone and piano by Mikal Cronin, bass by Emmett Kelly, percussion and drums by Segall and Charles Moothart, and back up vocals by Shannon Lay." 

Previously Segall shared a video for First Taste's first single, "Taste." It was one of our Songs of the Week.

A previous press release said First Taste features instrumentation previously unexplored by Segall, including "koto, recorder, bouzouki, harmonizer, mandolin, saxophones and brass, voices, and a sprinkling of keys." Also, when the drums are heard on the left speaker it's Segall playing, but when they are heard on the right speaker it's Charles Moothart playing the kit. 

Segall's most recent albums before this one were the covers album, Fudge Sandwich, and the live album, Deforming Lobes.
