Frankie Cosmos share new single “Rings (On A Tree)”

“Rings (On A Tree)” is taken from Frankie Cosmos‘ upcoming album Close It Quietly, out September 5 via Sub Pop.

A few weeks ago, Frankie Cosmos announced their fourth album with a brand new single and video, “Windows“. Described as “a manifestation of the band’s collaborative spirit”, the record was recorded at Brooklyn’s Figure 8 Studios and engineered and co-produced by Gabe Wax. They’re now back with a new song, “Rings (On A Tree)”, which initially appeared in Haunted Items, a digital-only collection of stripped-down songs for the piano that was released earlier this year. The track was re-recorded in a full band configuration for the album.

About the new single, Greta Kline detailed:

[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.
