Washed Out Unveils New Single "Running Away"

Atlanta producer Ernest Greene’s chillwave /bedroom synth pop project Washed Out has unveiled his new single “Running Away“.

The track serves as the second taste of his upcoming fifth album, ‘Notes from a Quiet Life,’ set to arrive on June 28th on Sub Pop Records. Pre-order it here.

Greene shares about the song: “Starting work on a new album often means a lot of failed experiments.  Basically, I’m just waiting around until I stumble into something new that I can build an album concept around.  For NFAQL, that song was “Running Away”.  It had all of the ingredients that ended up shaping the aesthetic for the album: a more minimal arrangement, sonic clarity, and more of an emphasis on classic songwriting technique.”
Additionally, Washed Out has announced live shows to support his forthcoming record, with festival appearances at Sundown Festival and Twilight Concert Series in June and Day In Day Out in July. North American Headline shows to follow in August. See below for a full list of shows.
