We’re pleased to bring you the premiere of Beta Days’ new song “This Art Ain’t Mine” (listen below). The track is taken from the band’s upcoming full-length, S.T.T., which is scheduled to be released on June 23.
Beta Days evolved from multi-instrumentalist, Bill Bierce’s late night writing sessions that would start around 3AM. Fighting isolation, lack of sleep, and depression, Bierce battled through ups and downs to write and record enough material for a full length LP.
Stream Beta Days’ new single below, “This Art Ain’t Mine”. Dreamy tunes but with straight to the point lyrics, this first single gives us a closer look into the overall theme of the album. (Watch the video also below)
“The 1st single is ‘This Art Ain’t Mine’ and its loosely about what was on my mind when starting this project and its kind of like the theme song for the rest of the album. Some people love the comfort of having a secure spot at a company they didn’t start, or playing in a band they don’t write the songs for, but others have to be doing their own thing. I’m in the second category, but I don’t know that it necessarily leads to a happier life.
Production wise – I tuned the snare drum for what seamed like hours trying to get it to sound huge, ultimately never really being happy with the tone. But Andrew (Bill’s close friend & engineer) thought it sounded excellent. This recording is also kind of interesting because I made 3-4 different demos of this track before we went to properly record it and theres remnants of every iteration in there. So some of the sounds had been hastily recorded 2-3 years beforehand, while others were added in during mixing. It’s a hodge-podge spanning 3 or so years.” – Bill Bierce said.
