POND and Tame Impala multi-instrumentalist Gum, a.k.a. Jay Watson, has announced his fifth album Out In The World coming June 12, 2020. Leading off the album is the dark new title track.
"'Out In the World' is about wanting to give up and never talk to anyone ever again after something goes wrong. Some people have that feeling all the time — it's crippling and isolating," Watson explains. "It sounds like light coming through half-shut blinds. It's not possible for all, but for me, I force myself to go out again, or get on stage, or do whatever it is I have to do to keep moving on."
Alongside this, he's also revealing a dreamy cover of "It's A Sad World'" from Ballroom, which he discovered on YouTube a few years ago. "It reminded me of Portishead," he unveils, "the production is amazing. I like recording covers every now and then to break up recording your own songs. It's nice to not have to worry about the songwriting and just record something for the sake of it."
