Take Your Mind Back

A 1 track power pop single (3m 19s) — released March 17th 2017 on Gare du Nord Records

"Take Your Mind Back" is the new single from Ralegh Long, taken from his forthcoming second album Upwards of Summer. The single marks a change of pace from his previous records. The baroque woodwinds and strings of Hoverance and We Are in the Fields are nowhere to be seen, replaced by a rush of chorus guitars calling to mind bands such as R.E.M, The DB's, the Go-Betweens and Teenage Fanclub.

According to Long, "Take Your Mind Back was partly inspired by the heat and light of Japan in summer, and by travelling and touring a lot last year, playing shows through Italy, Sardinia, France and Austria. The heat and excitement made me think about the past, in that way each Summer has of somehow containing all the previous ones."

To produce the album, Long reunited with Goat Girl, Fat White Family and Phobophobes producer Margo Broom at Hermitage Works Studios in London. The record features his touring band, including pedal steel player Jack Hayter of Hefner.
