The Mountain Goats – Cry for Judas

“This here album track, anyway, is called “Cry for Judas,” it is about survival but that’s kind of an oversimplification, it’s also about building a vehicle from the defeated pieces of the thing you survived and piloting that vehicle through the cosmos, it’s kind of complicated but people who know what I’m talking about will kind of intuitively get the idea and the rest of you will I hope be able to get a sense of it through the song.”

Here’s the first single ‘Cry for Judas’ off of The Mountain Goats‘ forthcoming album, their fourteenth studio album “Transcendental Youth,” due out on October 2nd via Merge Records, also available around the same time via Tomlab (UK & Europe) and Moorworks (Japan). The album was produced by Portland, OR-based Brandon Eggleston (tUnE-yArDs, Miniature Tigers, Owen Pallett…), and Matthew E. White did horn arrangements. The single is available on iTunes, and for free download via Merge Soundcloud. “Transcendental Youth” pre-order, HERE.
