Bartees Strange Announces The New Album ‘Farm To Table’ With ‘Cosigns,’ Where Trap Meets Indie-Rock

Bartees Strange has been working towards something this year: He signed with 4AD and dropped his debut single for the label, “Heavy Heart,” in March. Now, the inevitable album news has been revealed: Farm To Table is set for release on June 17. That news arrived alongside a new single, “Cosigns,” on which he shows love to some of his peers in music, like Bon Iver, Phoebe Bridgers, Courtney Barnett, and Lucy Dacus.

Most notably, the track is a stylistic departure for Bartees, starting as Auto-Tuned trap before working its way back to more familiar indie-rock territory.

Press materials note of the new album’s relationship to its predecessor, “Where his 2020 debut record Live Forever introduced the experiences and places that shaped Bartees (Flagey Brussels, Mustang Oklahoma), Farm To Table zeros in on the people — specifically his family — and those closest to him on his journey so far. With his career firmly on the ascent, Farm To Table examines Bartees’ constantly shapeshifting relationship with life post-Live Forever. It also speaks to a deeper lore that says, don’t forget where you came from, and this album is why.”
