Peach Pit has shared a new song called "Vickie."
The buoyant new track arrived today along with a video directed by Lester Lyons-Hookham. The song itself has been in the works for a few years, and lead singer Neil Smith previously played the song for fans in the summer of 2020, prompting many to request the band release it. The song is from their upcoming album From 2 to 3, which is out March 4.
"I was hanging out with my friend Vickie a few years back, and we got to talking about her birthday which was coming up," recalls Smith. "Without me asking, she said, 'All I want for my birthday is for someone to write a song about me.' Anyways, I got the hint."
He continues: "I'd actually already started writing something that began with the line 'If you lived right down the street' and decided to make a song about what life would be like if Vickie and I were neighbors. Now years later the song is on our new record and you get to see the journey from my place to Vickie’s in the music video."
Along with the new music, Peach Pit is heading out on a massive tour starting in March.
