At the beginning of last month, Mac DeMarco introduced his next studio album, Here Comes the Cowboy, by sharing its lead single, “Nobody.” Now, the beloved singer-songwriter is back with the follow-up to “Nobody” and another taste of his forthcoming full-length’s creative direction, “All of Our Yesterdays.”
“This was the first song I wrote in the sequence of songs that appear on my new record,” Mac DeMarco states. “Most of the rest of the songs were written in November right before we went on tour in Europe, but this one’s probably from about seven or eight months before that. I left it sitting with only one verse done for a long time, then finished it up while I was writing the rest of the record. The phrase ‘all of our yesterdays’ comes from the play Macbeth. Also, I think there’s a Star Trek episode from 1969 with the same title; very cool. I had just seen a documentary about Oasis before writing this song, and I was trying to write a gigantic rock and roll hit with my renewed love for the band. I didn’t really get close to that at all, but I’m happy with the song that came out hahahahaha. I hope you enjoy, have a nice day.”
“This one is my cowboy record,” Mac DeMarco previously shared, opening up about what fans can expect once his new album arrives. “Cowboy is a term of endearment to me, I use it often when referring to people in my life. Where I grew up there are many people that sincerely wear cowboy hats and do cowboy activities. These aren’t the people I’m referring to.” Here Comes the Cowboy was recorded at DeMarco’s Jizz Jazz Studios in Los Angeles during the first two weeks of January 2019, and will serve as Mac DeMarco’s first release under the Record Label banner.
