The new song is taken from the group’s upcoming new album ‘Mexico’ which is set to be released on the 7th May.
The Berlin based Alt-indie group are back with a brand new single ‘Ghost’ taken from their upcoming new album Mexico, which is set to be released through Howl Records.
Talking about the new song, the trio said: “Ghost is a song that will be interpreted depending on where you at in your life – you can either see it as the most real love song that there is; a real and honest meaning like acknowledging the fact that being in a relationship or being in love or giving yourself to someone isn’t always easy. In fact it could be god damn hard – it just can rock you to your core. But than at the end of the day it’s because it’s so real because you go through so many fundamental feelings with that person you know that the relationship and the bond that you end up forming is something that will last until you die. So you could say ‘until you’re a ghost to me’ means ‘I’m with you’ kind of forever it’s just a different way of putting that settlement. Or you can look at it being like this is the anti-love song like being in love is shit nothing but hardship and than it could be like a breakup song like ‘Until you’re a ghost to me’ means ‘you’re dead to me’. So I think it’s up for interpretation in there, people are gonna find what they want in the song.”
The group’s last record All Things Go was released a year ago and then spent February and March on tour – until the pandemic hit. Together, they decided to record the new songs that they had written in singer and lyricist Ian Hooper’s home studio along with their producer Nikolai Potthoff and their drummer Joda Förster.
This new album has been described as “intimate, personal and direct as Mighty Oaks have sounded since when the world first fell in love with them.” To create it, there was less reliance on computers, and more playing together. There were also fewer plug-ins, more tape, more of a live-sound feeling – taking them back to their back to the roots.
