Wild Nothing today unveil a lunar tracking website and offer a free download of the new single ‘Paradise‘. With Wild Nothing’s sophomore release quickly approaching, the site provides a segue into the world of the band’s new album Nocturne.
The site is a working lunar calendar which uses geo-tracking to display accurate moon phases, luminosity, rises and moonsets all over the world. More than a calendar, the site includes tour dates, mixes and today is hosting a free download of the new single ‘Paradise’…

For Jack Tatum, the lunar phases speak to the months he spent writing the album:
“There was a great deal of restlessness that went into the creation of this album. The moon cycle has come to represent this for me; a slowly changing symbol of where these songs feel most at home, a sleepless state of mind.”
Headline shows for later this year are currently being scheduled though ahead of these Wild Nothing will be joining labelmates The Walkmen as special guest in Dublin, Manchester and London.
Monday 29 October – DUBLIN – Vicar Street (supporting THE WALKMEN)
Tuesday 30 October – MANCHESTER – Ritz (supporting THE WALKMEN)
Thursday 1 November – LONDON – Forum (supporting THE WALKMEN)
