Long-running experimental Brooklyn musician Charlie Looker (of Zs, Extra Life, and Psalm Zero) is releasing his first solo album, Simple Answers, this Friday (6/15), and it was made with a 17-piece orchestra featuring members of Mivos Quartet and ICE, as well as sopranos Daisy Press and Megan Schubert, all of whom will be with Charlie for his special hometown release show on Thursday (6/14) at National Sawdust (tickets). Ahead of the album and release show, we’re premiering one of its songs, “Golden Flesh.”

Charlie tells us, “This is the most poppy song on the record by far, a shimmering halo of dopamine I cooked up. The lyrics relate to the rest of the album’s recurring themes, but they’re such a particularly bad vibe that I won’t even go into it here. They who have ears, let them hear.” Listen below.

Daisy Press is also doing an opening set (singing the music of Hildegard von Bingen) at the release show, and Charlie Looker’s set will feature an appearance by guest vocalist Doug Moore of Pyrrhon, who will perform “surprise cover songs with Looker’s arrangements.”

You can pre-order the new album here.
