Nickel Creek debut their new track

GRAMMY Award-winning trio Nickel Creek release new song, “Where the Long Line Leads,”

GRAMMY Award-winning trio Nickel Creek release new song, “Where the Long Line Leads,” written by mandolinist Chris Thile, violinist Sara Watkins and guitarist Sean Watkins, is debuting today. Listen/share HERE.

Reflecting on the song, the band shares, “‘Where the Long Line Leads’ is the hardest we’ve ever sang and played on record, perhaps because the subject matter gets us all riled up, as does the harmonic progression, which almost feels like it’s playing tug-o-war with itself under our fingers.

“Where the Long Line Leads” is the third rack unveiled from Nickel Creek’s highly anticipated new album, Celebrants, which will be released March 24 via Thirty Tigers (pre-order). Their fifth studio album and first new release in nine years, Celebrants marks a long-awaited return for the beloved trio and explores the inherent dynamics of human connection. Across the 18 tracks, the group addresses love, friendship and time with lyrics both poetic and plain-spoken, as they see bridges built, crossed, burned and rebuilt. Recorded at Nashville’s RCA Studio A, the album was produced by longtime collaborator Eric Valentine (Queens of the Stone Age, Grace Potter, Weezer) and features Mike Elizondo on bass.

Ahead of the release, Nickel Creek has unveiled two additional album tracks: “Holding Pattern” and “Strangers”.

In celebration of the new music, Nickel Creek will return to the road next month with their first headline tour since 2014 and will visit the UK again for a run of festival dates, including The Long Road, and a special show at London’ Barbican on September 1st. The band recently played two extremely special sold out shows at London’s Union Chapel.

Of the project, the band reflects, “This is a record about embracing the friction inherent in real human connection. We begin the record yearning for and pursuing harmonious connection. We end the record having realised that truly harmonious connection can only be achieved through the dissonance that we’ve spent our entire adult lives trying to avoid.”
