Smith Westerns just released “3am Spiritual,” the second single from Soft Will, the bandâ€™s long-awaited follow up to Dye It Blonde.
It’s a track that finds the band in a contemplative mode, dealing with disillusionment from heavy touring and the readjustment of returning home.
After playing over 140 shows in support of Dye it Blonde in 2012, Smith Westerns (Cullen Omori, Max Kakacek and Cameron Omori) returned to Chicago and began writing the follow-up LP. Writing through the Spring and into the Summer of 2012, the band teamed up once again with producer Chris Coady (Beach House, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, TVOR) and in August began recording what would become Soft Will at Sonic Ranch (El Paso, TX).

The band’s third album, Soft Will will be released June 25. Smith Westerns play the Casbah on August 12.
