“Never Been Wrong” By Waxahatchee

Waxahatchee have debuted “Never Been Wrong,” the second single from their upcoming album, Out in the Storm via Zane Lowe’s Beats 1 show on Apple Music.

Katie Crutchfield’s fourth album as Waxahatchee and her second full-length with Merge, Out in the Storm will be released on July 14. The album tells the story of Crutchfield taking control of a volatile situation, embracing her flaws, and exploring a new sonic freedom. “A running theme on the album is accepting your own imperfections that you’ve been trying really hard to hide,” says Crutchfield.

“Never Been Wrong” brazenly opens the album with fiery guitars and Crutchfield’s forthright lyrics: “You walk around like/ It’s your god-given right/ You love being right/ You’ve never been wrong.” This song serves as the foundation of the album by setting up the story with Crutchfield’s anger, sadness, and vulnerability all at once. “Being straightforward has always been more natural for me, and it was incredibly cathartic,” says Crutchfield. “It reminded me of being a teenager again, how I wrote songs then, and how huge that felt. It’s like that moment you walk away from a fight and you realize all of the things you should have said. This record is me saying all of that out loud alone as a personal practice. It’s sad and it’s angry, and I think being both at the same time proved to be a powerful motivation for me.”

Joining Katie on her world tour this summer are Allison Crutchfield (guitar), Katherine Simonetti (bass), Ashley Arnwine (drums), and Ali Donohue (guitar).
