As beautiful as the pure notes of its titular bird, and also as totally badass (thrushes eat snails by picking them up and smashing them against rocks!), "True Thrush" is the second track to be made available from Dan Deacon's forthcoming album America. It's an indisputably anthemic, upbeat summer jam and is the album's real, honest-to-god single. 21st Century hit music. Both album and single will be out on the 27th of August. Listen to it now!

While "Lots" is a good introduction to the album's aesthetic territory, "True Thrush" is Deacon outdoing himself to craft truly transcendent pop. This is the song we've been waiting for him to make. PRE-ORDER AMERICA NOW.
