The new YACHT album See Mystery Lights isn't out for another few weeks, but here's a taste of the record with a song that premiered yesterday on Pitchfork. The song is called "Psychic City," and it's a fun summertime pop jam, complete with waterdrop backbeat and sing-along refrain. But the song has quite a backstory, which can be traced here on Yacht's website. It's a cover of sorts of a song by Rich Jensen called "Voodoo City," and Yacht explains not just Jensen's role in the recording, but the other inspirations that led to the track's creation. Meanwhile, See Mystery Lights comes out July 28 on DFA Records, the label run by James Murphy of LCD Soundsystem, who is incidentally the subject of Yacht's "Summer Song."
