If you've been a fan of David Wax Museum for a while, you'll know that there's an almost mythical unreleased album that they've been waiting to release until they felt they could fully tour behind it. Ok, it's not really mythical since they've talked about it a bunch, but we've been waiting for years to hear this album. The great news is that it's finally getting released. And, after hearing the first single off of this album, it's going to be great. "Luanne" is almost a thowback to when I first discovered David Wax Museum. It's a giant, celebratory song rooted in traditional folk while being more of a modern neo-folk song. Lately, they've been a little more quiet and even experimental. "Luanne" is a back to roots song that is just begging to be played at large outdoor shows this summer. If this is just the first taste of the album, we're thrilled we only have three more months to hear the rest!
