Caamp have shared ‘Apple Tree Blues’ the newest song to be released off their forthcoming album Lavender Days (June 24th via Mom & Pop). Listen to the single here.
Taylor Meier, the band’s lead singer, describes the song as “one of those songs that just kind of tumbled out in one breath. Raspberry velvet hit my notebook and the song wrote itself. The band helped to decorate it so well, and I love how the ending fades like riding a bike over a hill. We hope you somersault to it.”
Lavender Days was produced by Caamp and Beatriz Artola (Fleet Foxes, Adele, Sharon Van Etten). Initial recording took place at Sylvan Esso’s American studio beginning in February 2021, where together Caamp workshopped the songs and began principal tracking, bringing in friends like Nathaniel Rateliff and Waxahatchee’s Katie Crutchfield to contribute vocals. When it was time to finish the record, the boys headed home to wrap it up, with help from Artola, the way they always have, in their humble home studio – just them and their instruments in their hometown. Lavender Days is available for pre-order here including an exclusive clear vinyl via the band’s website: www.caamptheband.com. Listen to previously released single ‘Believe’ here.
