Listen To Frankie Cosmos’ “Rings (On A Tree)” The New Single From ‘Close it Quietly’ (out September 6th)

World tour dates announced for September, October, and November.

On September 6th, Sub Pop will release Frankie Cosmos’ fourth studio album, Close It Quietly. This album is a manifestation of the band’s collaborative spirit: Greta Kline and longtime bandmates Lauren Martin (synth), Luke Pyenson (drums), and Alex Bailey (bass) luxuriated in studio time with Gabe Wax, who engineered and co-produced the record with the band at Brooklyn’s Figure 8 Studios.

Early this year, Frankie Cosmos released Haunted Items, a digital-only collection of new stripped-down songs for the piano which the band’s latest single, “Rings (On A Tree)”, first appeared. As the band’s frontwoman Greta Kline describes, it’s “a fictional tale of a breakup from the point of view of a mistress. After I wrote it I realized what it meant to me– even though I’ve never been a mistress, I related to the character from being in a relationship where my feelings weren’t prioritized. I originally wrote it just on piano and released the solo version that way. The band version really takes it somewhere else and felt very collaborative. I love everyone’s parts. Alex wrote the funky guitar part I play in the middle section, based on an idea Luke and Lauren verbalized.” You can listen to the band version of “Rings (On A Tree) above, and also by clicking here.
