At the end of last month, Modern Baseball announced they would soon return with their new album Holy Ghost, which splits writing credits between frontmen Jake Ewald and Brendan Lukens. Now, they have shared two new tracks exhibiting the forthcoming LP’s duality.

The melancholic “Everyday” was penned by Ewald, who told NPR the song tackles his attempt to cull meaning from seemingly inconsequential memories:

I have a pretty bad memory. When I manage to remember things from my past (recent or distant), they usually seem insignificant on the surface. Nevertheless, those are the things I remember, and most of the important stuff is forgotten. ‘Everyday’ is a short exhibit of those insignificant memories and an attempt at understanding their importance in my life.

The biting “Apple Cider, I Don’t Mind,” on the other hand, was helmed by Lukens, clocks in at less than two minutes and chronicles the demise of a relationship:

Trust is something every growing relationship needs. Without trust, all your conversations are just questions and doubts. I lost my best friend and partner, and didn’t know who to blame. “Apple” is a toast to looking at past mistakes as a chance to move forward.

You can hear both new tracks at the bottom of the page. Holy Ghost will land in stores on May 13 via Run for Cover. Then, Modern Baseball will embark on a tour with Joyce Manor and Thin Lips. See the newly announced dates below:
