Ty Segall is releasing a new album, “Hello, Hi”, on July 22 via Drag City. Now he has shared its second single, “Saturday Pt. 2,” which features a saxophone solo from bandmate Mikal Cronin. Listen below, followed by Segall’s upcoming tour dates.

A press release describes the song more fully: “‘Saturday Pt. 2’ concludes a mini-suite that forms the penultimate movement of “Hello, Hi”. Fuzz-free guitars roll forth, ringing with consonance and humble purpose. Ty’s reassuring murmur leads the way until Mikal Cronin’s elegant saxophone throws open the windows, losing joy, hysteria and all the other simple pains and pleasures that have sat behind closed doors for so long. It’s a slow-roiling escape-anthem, finally sighting what’s been missing and wished-upon for what seems like forever: the time we find to play, the magical expanse of Saturday.”

Previously Segall shared the album’s title track, “Hello, Hi.”

A previous press release describes the album in greater detail: ““Hello, Hi” is expansively rendered by Ty, mostly by himself, at home. The isolation suits the songs: you’re only ever as ‘at home’ as you are with yourself in the mirror. Ty’s acoustic and electric guitars and vocal harmonies layer self upon self, forming a spiny backbone for the album. Textures at once gentle and dissonant root the songs as they make their move: melodic arcs convulsing in doubt and bliss and rage. Released from the endless gridlock into open space, these spirits pass on through.”

In February, Segall released the soundtrack to the Matt Yoka documentary Whirlybird, his first ever feature film score, via Drag City. Its single, “Story of the Century,” was one of our Songs of the Week. Last August, Segall surprise released the album Harmonizer via Drag City.
