Sun Kil Moon and Jesu put out their first collaborative album this past January, but already they’re looking ahead to its follow-up. Titled 30 Seconds to the Decline of Planet Earth, it’s expected to hit shelves on June 1st next year via Caldo Verde. Already we’ve heard its lead single, a nasty takedown of Michael Jackson dubbed “He’s Bad”; today, the two musicians return with “Needles Disney World”.
A quietly pulsing track, it finds Sun Kil Moon’s Mark Kozelek recounting a story about taking an addict to Disney World. The songwriter and the addict — who is so excited to go to the amusement park that he’s described as bouncing like a “little yo-yo” — meet a fan who plays a Disney park character and have a grand ole time careening down Splash Mountain.
