BRUCE HORNSBY & EZRA KOENIG – ” Sidelines “(feat. Blake Mills)

Posted: March 26, 2022 in MUSIC

Bruce Hornsby has announced a new album, “Flicted”, which is the final installment of his trilogy that began with 2019’s “Absolute Zero” and 2020’s “Non-Secure Connection“, albums that connected Hornsby with hipper, younger collaborators like Bon Iver, The Shins’ James Mercer, Jamila Woods, and more. 

‘Flicted continues that trend; its first single is “Sidelines,” a duet with Vampire Weekend’s Ezra Koenig that was co-written by Blake Mills who also plays guitar on the album. Long time Vampire Weekend collaborator Ariel Rechtshaid produced. Ezra is a good fit for Hornsby, as Vampire Weekend already kind of make the most fashionable possible version of boomer-era cheese, and he fits right in on this song.

The album also includes a song with Danielle Haim and one with Bon Iver collaborators Ethan Gruska and Rob Moose.

‘Flicted” drops May 27th via Zappo Productions/Thirty Tigers.
