Mac DeMarco is releasing his fourth studio album, Here Comes the Cowboy, on May 10 via Mac’s Record Label. Last month, he shared the record’s lead single “Nobody” and today he’s revealed the second single, “All Of Our Yesterdays.” The languid strummer doesn’t stray too far from his usual mellow vibe, despite his attempt to make a “gigantic roll and roll hit” a la Oasis. DeMarco explains the influences behind the song in this statement:
"Hi everybody, Mac here. Here’s my new song, it’s called ‘All Of Our Yesterdays.’ This was the first song I wrote in the sequence of songs that appear on my new record. 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. See ya later."
Here Comes the Cowboy follows 2017’s This Old Dog. Listen to “All Of Our Yesterdays” and watch DeMarco’s 2017 KEXP in-studio performance below.
