Track Of The Day: Grandaddy - 'The Way We Won't'

Much acclaimed American combo Grandaddy first came to my attention with their 1998 single 'AM 180', and their magnificent 2000 album 'The Sophtware Slump'. I have fond memories of watching them play in a tent at the Leeds Festival that same year. The band split in 2006, but now return with their first new material in over 10 years. Singer Jason Lyttle spoke in a recent interview about the group's second coming: "It’s a lot of fun. The differences are the obvious stuff – we’re definitely a lot fatter and a lot balder. I asked everyone if they’d be into getting back together, and everyone ended up being into it. That surprised me, and now it’s a case of just enjoying the ride." Grandaddy are currently working on a new album due for release early next year. Lyttle said of 'The Way We Won't': "I wanted it to be a way of saying “Hey everybody, there’s a new album coming!” It’s cool to have it as a 7”, as it means we can have another cool, weird B-side. A lot of people used to be into the weird B-sides we cranked out back then, so ‘Clear Your History’ is another of those." Both songs are available now.
