Real Estate return with ‘The Main Thing’ on Domino Recording Company.
Indie exclusive edition with limited deluxe tip on gatefold sleeve. Frontman Martin Courtney says the track is “an inspiration In a press release, Real Estate’s Martin Courtney explained:

“The Main Thing” is my attempt at writing an inspirational anthem for anyone who’s ever been in an existential crisis… specifically, me.

I was asking myself a lot of uncomfortable questions throughout the process of making this album. Wondering if being an artist is irresponsible or selfish, particularly with the world in the state that it’s in, particularly as a parent of young kids. This was the last song I wrote for this album, and I think it kind of distills where I found myself at the end of what turned out to be a long and extremely rewarding process: psyched on the power of music, for real!

The lyrics in this song are sort of tongue in cheek, but the sentiment is very real. Basically… when life gets tough, when the stresses start piling up, when you start second guessing every decision you’ve made, what do you do? You double down on the thing that makes you happy, the thing that feeds your soul.

At Long Last ! We can finally share our new single “Paper Cup” with you. It’s the second song on our new album, ‘The Main Thing’ which comes out on February 28th, The Main Thing is Real Estate’s follow-up to 2017’s In Mind. The band heads out on tour in support of The Main Thing in April.
