Sunflower Bean Unveils New Tour Dates + Shares New Single

Per the official press release –

New York trio Sunflower Bean will release their sophomore record next month, and today they share a gorgeous new single called “Twentytwo.” Showcasing a gentler side of Sunflower Bean that’s on display on Twentytwo in Blue, “Twentytwo” is a sweet and breezy mid-tempo track about fighting back against society’s expectations and generations of abuse by men in power. “Busted and used/ That’s how you view your girl/ Now that she’s 22,” sings bassist and vocalist Julia Cumming. While it’s timely with the recent cultural reckoning, “Twentytwo” shares a powerful and enduring message about resilience and fighting through the expectations put on you as a young adult, especially as a young woman. As Cumming puts it, “You prevail.” Listen to “Twentytwo” HERE.

Sunflower Bean are taking Twentytwo in Blue on the road this year with tour dates throughout the U.S., E.U., and U.K. See below to find a show near you, including a hometown show at Bowery Ballroom in NYC on April 26th where they will perform the new album in its entirety. Get your tickets HERE.

Sunflower Bean will release Twentytwo in Blue on March 23rd – when all members of the band will be 22 years old – and comes almost two years and two months after the release of their critically acclaimed 2016 debut album Human Ceremony. Co-produced by Unknown Mortal Orchestra’s Jacob Portrait (who also mixed the record) and HC-producer Matt Molnar of Friends, Twentytwo in Blue shows Sunflower Bean stay true to their guitar band core and classic rock-inspired roots, while exploring new sonic textures with more direct and progressive themes. Unlike their debut, which was essentially a compilation of songs Sunflower Bean wrote while still in their teens, Twentytwo in Blue was made in the year between December 2016 and December 2017 and showcases how far the band has come since playing together in their high school days. Pre-order Twentytwo in Blue, out 3/23 on Mom + Pop, HERE or HERE.
