Nap Eyes Announce New Album, ‘I’m Bad Now,’ Out March 9th

Nap Eyes are pleased to announce the release of their new album, I’m Bad Now, on March 9th via Paradise of Bachelors (USA), You’ve Changed (Canada), and Jagjaguwar (rest of world). The acclaimed Canadians’ ambitious, allusive third album achieves a new sonic clarity, depth, and range to match the effortless melodies and extraordinary writing. It’s the band’s most transparent and personal set of songs to date, in which singer Nigel Chapman interrogates social, psychological, and spiritual milieus for clues about the elusive nature of knowledge.

Album opener “Every Time the Feeling,” shared today, arrives with a subdominant chord and a subdominant attitude, only switching to the first person in the (repeated) final verse, for this devastating admission:

Oh I can’t tell what’s worse:
The meaninglessness or the negative meaning
But I figured out a way
To get on with my life and to keep on dreaming
