San Fermin Song Premiere: Listen To 'Jackrabbit' from New Album
Brooklyn-based baroque pop outfit San Fermin is coming back this spring with its sophomore album, Jackrabbit, and are previewing the new full-length with a handful of U.S. dates beginning next week. Before those shows kick off, check out "Jackrabbit," the title track of the new LP, premiering exclusively on Billboard.com:
For the follow-up to the band's self-titled 2013 debut, San Fermin has turned into an eight-piece ensemble, after a majority of the songs existed on frontman Ellis Ludwig-Leone's laptop for nearly a year. Jackrabbit was produced by Peter Katis, best known for his work with Interpol and The National.
"'Jackrabbit' is the last song I wrote on this record," says Ludwig-Leone, "and it definitely sums up some themes I've been circling for a while now. It's fight-or-flight plus a marching band, which is basically my stance on everything."
Jackrabbit is due out Apr. 21 on Downtown Records. Check out the group's full tour itinerary below:
