Cass McCombs is teaming up with NYC underground rock heads Weak Signal to release a new collaborative 7-inch. Titled The Vacation From Thought b/w Give It Back, this is the first new music from McCombs since August’s Heartmind. It’s also the first new release from Weak Signal since their album War And War came out earlier this year. For now, the collective have shared their 7-inch’s A-side, “Vacation From Thought.”

Recorded to tape by Philip Weinrobe and mastered by Carl Saff, “Vacation From Thought” is a mid-tempo guitar jaunt that sounds heavily inspired by the sort of detached, downtown cool initially trademarked by the Velvet Underground. “Everyone deserves a vacation of thought/ Everyone deserves an escape,” McCombs huffs into the mic with Sasha Vine on backing vocals. Listen below.
