Hot off his recent album announcement and lead single, David Duchovny has now unveiled the second single, “Nights Are Harder These Days,” off this upcoming third album, Gestureland, via GMG/King Baby. Commenting on the track, Duchovny simply shares, “Turn this one up in the car. If you don’t have a car, just turn it up.”

Duchovny’s new release will drop on August 20th via GMG/King Baby. The new studio recording follows the sophomore outing Every Third Thought (2018) and, according to a recent press release, “…builds on the musical and lyrical themes of its predecessor while exploring some new territory as heard on the first single ‘Layin’ On The Tracks.’”

Commenting on the record’s lead single, David shared, “I just wanted to go on record in a way that was both personal and political.”  He further expanded, adding, “The album represents three years of song writing over which time I think we developed into a band so there’s a stronger element of deep collaboration here. The songs are obviously inspired by present day life and problems but we hope to make them universal. We also stretch our sound a little ——getting both heavier and lighter at different times. You want to know which songs are about me. None of them. They’re about you.”

For the album’s writing and recording, Duchovny teamed with Colin Lee (keyboard), Pat McCusker (guitars, synths), Mitchell Stewart (bass), Keenan O’Meara (guitar) and Davis Rowan (drums.)

McCusker commented on finishing the album, “Shortly after our time at Outlier, the pandemic hit. After a month or so of being in full lockdown mode, we started recording overdubs and vocals at our studio in Long Island City. To have our own space to be able to finish Gestureland safely throughout 2020 was a blessing. The more we’ve all worked together, the more we’re all taking risks and tapping into new influences.”
