The Big Pink - Stay Gold

The Big Pink return this November with ‘Stay Gold’, the first new track to appear from their forthcoming second album, Future This, which is due for release in January 2012. The track is to be released as a single on 4AD on November 7th and shows the band have lost none of their verve in their time away from the spotlight. Written with references to both an article from the late-60s by Stanley Kubrick in Playboy and Robert Frost's Pulitzer Prize winning poem, 'Nothing Gold Can Stay' (which also featured prominently in the book and subsequent film, The Outsiders), 'Stay Gold' is about finding things that make you happy. In Milo's case, that was graffiti when he was a kid; a subject that runs through the artwork for their forthcoming second album.
