Listen to Heidecker and Wood’s new single, “What Else Is New?”



As we previously noted, comedian/actor Tim Heidecker (Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job!) and composer Davin Wood (Billion Dollar Movie) are teaming up again as Heidecker & Wood to release their sophomore album, Some Things Never Stay The Same. The follow-up to 2011’s Staring From Nowhere is due out November 12th via Little Record Company and is previewed today with the lead single “What Else Is New?”

Here, the duo channel ’70s pop-rock (poking fun as much as paying tribute, of course) with piano pouncing, playful melodies, and even sillier lyricism: “So you want to talk about the weather? / Oh no, I didn’t think so / So you want to talk about the sports show?/ Oh no, I didn’t think so.” If the track’s any indication of the new LP, then we’re in for some clever, fun-loving ridiculousness.

Some Things Never Stay The Same features 11 new tracks, including collaborations with Aimee MannRilo Kiley’s Pierre de Reeder, and Fruit Bats’ Eric Johnson. According to a press release, “It’s an ode to the heyday of the great 70s songwriters/studio rats — Randy Newman, Warren Zevon, Harry Nilsson, and hell, even Boz Scaggs, to name a few.”
