Sun Kil Moon and Jesu head to Florida on new song “Needles Disney World” — listen

The pair's next collaborative album arrives next spring


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.
