Today, Real Estate release the title track of their new album The Main Thing, out this Friday, February 28th, on Domino.
Like lead single “Paper Cup,” which featured a music video that captured the final performance in the career of a life size, guitar-spinning squirrel, “The Main Thing” backs “the crushing weight” of existential concern with a rollicking hook, ripping guitar lead, and tireless groove. As the second preview of a 13-song collection rooted in anxieties both political and environmental, universal and closely familial, its chorus nods to the central, self-affirming tenet that pushed the band to work longer, harder, and more collaboratively than they have on any album before.
Bassist Alex Bleeker explains, “We discovered through the care and attention that we brought to this record that making music to resonate with other people is our catharsis. The ‘main thing’ is following your path of inspiration, and hoping to inspire that in people around you.” Earlier this month, Real Estate performed “The Main Thing” on Live From Here with Chris Thile. Later this spring they begin an international tour of more than 35 shows and a Central Park Garden State Party they’ll be throwing with fellow New Jersey native Sharon Van Etten.

Real Estate will play TivoliVredenburg in Utrecht on June 21st.
