Real Estate Announce Third Album ‘Atlas,’ Release ‘Talking Backwards’ Video

Subscribe to on

The Real Estate outlook for the first quarter of 2014 is strong, as the band has announced the March 4 release of ‘Atlas,’ its third album and first since 2011. Along with the news comes a video for ‘Talking Backwards,’ which shows the perpetually chill fivesome hunkered down at Wilco‘s Loft studio, where they recorded the 10-song set with producer Tom Schick.

As for the music, ‘Talking Backwards’ is a song of sadness and romantic frustration, though you’d never know it from the easy-does-it beat and sweet chiming guitar. Singer Martin Courtney is having trouble expressing himself — “the only thing that really matters is the one thing I can’t seem to do” — but he won’t let communication issues kill the vibe.

Real Estate will celebrate ‘Atlas’ — arriving via Domino — with a North American tour due to begin Feb. 28 in San Francisco. Click here for a list of dates.
