Ty Segall - "Orange Color Queen"

The can't stop won't stop mentality of Ty Segall chugs along as the garage punk returns with another new record, the self-titled Ty Segall, out January 27 via Drag City.

"Orange Color Queen" finds Ty Segall on his more mellow replacing Stooge-esque punk with twisted acoustic psych-rock. It's a move that recalls the vibes of  Sleeper rather than his usual live-wire wail. When speaking with NPR, Segall said:

"This is a love song for my girlfriend, Denée. I've written her many, but I think this is my favorite. I travel around the world for a living and have developed a slight fear of flying. She's one of the things that makes it better for me to travel. Especially when she is with me. She has orange hair, and is my orange color queen. I rarely write songs like this, because it is so easy to sound disingenuous, but I think this one is pretty good. Thanks for listening."
