Wild Nothing (aka Jack Tatum) is releasing a new album, Hold, on October 27 via Captured Tracks. Now he has shared its second single, “Suburban Solutions,” via a music video. Tatum co-directed the video with Josh Burgess (of Yumi Zouma). Watch it below, followed by Wild Nothing’s upcoming tour dates.

Previously Wild Nothing shared the album’s first single, “Headlights On,” which features Hatchie and was shared via a music video. “Headlights On” was one of our Songs of the Week.

Tatum has also announced that he is releasing two limited edition wines tied into Hold. He has teamed up with New York State’s Osmote Wines for a special “Suburban Solutions” Riesling. And in the UK he has partnered with Blackbook Winery on a bottle for “Headlights On.” The wine will be available via a vinyl bundle.

Tatum had this to say about the wines in a press release: “I’m really thrilled to be partnering with Blackbook and Osmote for these limited run bottles inspired by my new album Hold. Sergio and Ben are both so passionate about what they do and when this partnership fell in my lap it felt like such a special opportunity to bring people in on something else that I love.

“We landed on a Riesling from Osmote and Sparkling Seyval Blanc from Blackbook, not only because they showcase what these guys do so well, but because they’re also exactly the kind of crisp, dry wines I’d reach for myself when out at dinner or having a few friends over. Ian Miller, who designed the Hold album art, also designed these labels and we had a blast tying them into the larger visual world of the record.”

Wild Nothing’s last album, Indigo, his fourth, came out in August 2018 via Captured Tracks. Indigo was our Album of the Week and one of our Top 100 Albums of 2018. In 2020 he released the Laughing Gas EP, also via Captured Tracks.

Jorge Elbrecht (Japanese Breakfast) mixed “Headlights On,” which features drum production by Tommy Davidson of Beach Fossils, and backing vocals from Hatchie’s Harriette Pilbeam. Tatum self-produced Hold and Geoff Swan (Caroline Polachek, Charli XCX) mixed it. The album also features Molly Burch, Becca Mancari, and Tatum’s his wife, Dana.

“I’ve sat with this record for a very long time now, so naturally I’m both excited and apprehensive to let it see the light,” said Tatum of Hold in a previous press release. “It’s my first record as a father. My first self-produced record since my debut. It’s a record that deals in existential themes but doesn’t always take itself too seriously. It’s not afraid of pop but it’s hopefully not afraid to be strange either. It has fun, gets sad, dwells in the quiet moments and embraces the loud ones. It’s me doing what I love and feeling grateful for it.”
