Rock band Moon Taxi has signed with BMG and released its latest single, “Hometown Heroes.”
The track was recorded in Nashville and produced by Moon Taxi guitarist Spencer Thomson alongside Christian Medice. The band is slated to release its sixth studio album, Silver Dream, this summer. The album marks a return to working with BMG for the band, who released their 2013 album Mountains Beaches Cities via their own 12th South Records, via BMG.
Moon Taxi includes Trevor Terndrup (vocals, guitarist), Thomson (lead guitarist and producer), Wes Bailey (keyboardist), Tommy Putnam (bassist) and Tyler Ritter (drummer). The five-member group has issued five studio projects, including the 2018 album Let The Record Play via RCA, which included the single “Two High,” which hit No. 1 on the AAA radio airplay chart and the Top 10 on alternative stations. The song has earned more than 130 million Spotify streams to date.
Terndrup says, “We’ve been so excited to put this song out since the day we wrote it. More than anything, it is inspired by our long-lasting friendships. Putting it out into the world feels like the start of a new chapter for us but also an idealized look back. We hope it brings good memories to mind for you until we can create new ones together in the future.”
