Wooden Shjips are releasing their fifth album, fittingly titled V., on May 25 via Thrill Jockey. Previously they shared its first single, the 8-minute long “Staring At the Sun.” Now they have shared another song from it, “Red Line.” Listen to both songs below.

The band’s singer/guitarist Ripley Johnson had this to say about “Red Line” in a press release: “This song is about trying to find equanimity as life continuously pulls you in different directions, emotionally and psychically. The bursts of backwards guitar are the sonic representation of that, being pulled out of your normal forward momentum, as the beat goes on.”
