Honey Bunny, the opening track on the new Girls album, will be out on 7″ and digital October 10 through Fantasy Trashcan / Turnstile. The B side will be brand new track Martina Martinez.
Here’s what Christopher Owens from Girls had to say about the track:
“Honey Bunny” was my 19th song to write. I wrote it on my birthday in 2008. I think the fact that it’s No. 19 gives it a little perspective. My first songs were kind of like, “Ahhhh, Help!” This one has a bit of swagger to it, and some reflection about my mother. It’s a special song to me now, not for the sassy swagger bits as much the parts about Mama. But I think for the listener, it could be the exact opposite. The energy and optimism and determination in it is quite appealing. But that’s the great thing about these things, right? The fact that all of us are hearing something entirely different. I believe that.” (via turnstile)
