Long Beard (aka Leslie Bear) has announced a new album, Means to Me, and shared its first single, “Sweetheart.” Means to Me is due out September 13 via Double Double Whammy. Listen to “Sweetheart” below, followed by the album’s tracklist and cover art.

Means to Me is Bear’s second Long Beard album, the follow-up to 2015’s Sleepwalker. The album was co-produced with Japanese Breakfast collaborator Craig Hendrix.

In a press release Bear had this to say about the album’s first single: “‘Sweetheart’ is a nostalgic song that shifts between the distant past and the present. It’s a letter to someone you’ve lost touch with from a long time ago, finding some small connection to their life with regards to yours- how the thought of them resurfaces every once in a while and how they may have shaped the person you’ve become while wondering if you’ve had a similar impact on them. It’s a jangly/indie pop song reminiscent of the ‘90s with a chimey lead guitar that weaves in and out. It’s written almost as a stream of consciousness with a heavy daydream mood.”

Means to Me Tracklist:

1. Countless
2. Getting By
3. Snow Globe
4. Sweetheart
5. Empty Bottle
6. In The Morning
7. Forever
8. Means to Me

Why such a pretty lady with a wonderful voice called herself as Long Beard?  It’s brutal. Anyways, love the music though,
