The Districts Announce New Album ‘Great American Painting’

The Districts today announced Great American Painting, their fifth full-length album produced by Joe Chiccarelli (Spoon, The Strokes, Broken Social Scene) and recorded at the legendary Sunset Sound in LA, will be released on February 4th, 2022, via Fat Possum. The band has also shared the soaring, spirited first single “I Want To Feel It All” alongside its cinematic video, which they directed together with Frank Apollonio.

“‘I Want To Feel It All’ is about feeling everything possible all at once, and emotional fireworks and loving the universe and everyone in it. But it also saves room for being about death and the darkness underlying all existence, and forgiveness and pain and acceptance,” explains vocalist/guitarist Rob Grote. “The video takes place in the twilit Pennsylvania hills, where we perform with fireworks in the ever fleeting present this song seeks to grasp. The surreal undertone to the video represents the detached dreamlike world this song lives in, while the unspoiled American landscape is a symbol of idealism and the natural mystery that inspires our work.”

The Districts—who toured supporting Modest Mouse this summer—have announced additional tour dates beginning in March next year. The band will also head back out on the road next week for a headline tour of the eastern U.S.
