Real Estate share ‘The Main Thing’ title track; album out this week

Woodsist Festival 2019 at Arrowood Farm Brewery

Real Estate‘s anticipated new album The Main Thing comes out this week (2/28 via Domino), and they’ve shared a second single (the title track) ahead of its release. Following the yacht rock, jam band-ish, and Sylvan Esso-featuring lead single “Paper Cup,” “The Main Thing” is a little more laid back — two and a half minutes of folky, jangly pop that does find a little time for backing ’80s-style synths and a flash of ’70s-style guitar soloing, but mostly keeps things on the more compact side. It’s cool stuff; listen below.

As mentioned, Real Estate are touring and playing a big co-headlining show with Sharon Van Etten at Central Park’s SummerStage on July 29 with opener Grace Ives (tickets). All dates are listed below.
