Veteran indie pop outfit Eisley released its fifth studio album I’m Only Dreaming last year on Equal Vision Records. Looking to give their most devout fans a new perspective of their latest batch of songs, Eisley is set to release a re-imagined version of the Will Yip-produced LP later this month.
I’m Only Dreaming of Days Long Past features acoustic, stripped-down, and otherwise recreated portrayals of the eleven original tracks. Before its July 20 release (also on Equal Vision), Billboard is premiering the album’s reinvented second track, “Defeatist.” Once a chiming, electric guitar-led song, it’s been transposed into a delicate specter featuring just piano and frontwoman Sherri DuPree’s voice.
Get a first listen of “Defeatist” below, as well as a look at the album artwork.
