Lt. Dan here with my DJ pick of the week from folk outfit the Head and the Heart. The band recently released a new song, “Missed Connection,” our first preview of their forthcoming album, Living Mirage, out May 17 via Warner Bros./Reprise Records. The new record accompanies a new lineup for the band after the departure of co-founder Josiah Johnson.
In a press release, drummer Tyler Williams said the song is different from anything the band has ever done, influenced by their love of hip-hop and pop production. “A lot of the beats on that song are quicker, and there are high-hats that were never in our music before,” he said.
Listen to “Missed Connection” below and let us now what you think!
