The track that almost didn’t make it

Future Generations has been giving us a taste of their upcoming album Landscape in the past few months with singles such as “Suddenly” and “All The Same.” Today the quintet is back with another single “Out Loud” – an effortless psych pop piece that takes you in a smooth, slo-mo waltz. It’s melodic Xanax:

“Initially ‘Out Loud’ did not make the original tracklisting for the album, but after sitting with the song it’s turned out to be a favorite for many of us. It’s a new direction for us in terms of songwriting and incorporates a lot of influences we’ve always talked about having but never used before.”
