Hiss Golden Messenger recently announced news of their upcoming album Terms Of Surrender, due for release on September 20th on Merge Records.

Now, M.C. Taylor and co. have unveiled another new track, in the form of ‘Happy Birthday, Baby’. Take a listen below…

M.C. Taylor wrote the track for his daughter’s fifth birthday. He states: “It’s mostly a love letter to her, part apology, part plea for forgiveness, and part recounting of the day she was born, when all the roads boiled over with rainwater and thunder and lightning filled the air…There are also many secret things in this song that only my family knows about.”

The album was produced by Taylor and Brad Cook, and features guest appearances by Jenny Lewis, Josh Kaufman and Aaron Dessner of The National.

Hiss Golden Messenger will be going out on a headlining tour in support of Terms Of Surrender, kicking off on September 24th in Greenville, SC. In addition, the band have also just announced a host of UK dates.
