Indie-rock duo Best Coast will release the follow-up to last year's The Only Place in the form of a seven-track "mini album" called Fade Away. The new set is due out October 22nd on singer Bethany Cosentino's new label, Jewel City. The music is being described as an energetic set inspired by Mazzy Star, Patsy Cline, My Bloody Valentine and Ambien.

Best Coast Have Fun When They Please in 'The Only Place'

"Everything in this band has worked out so organically that sometimes it scares me that something bad is going to happen," said Cosentino in a statement. "I feel like the luckiest person in the world. If I wasn't doing this, I don't know what I would be doing." While five of the tracks are new to fans, the band released two songs earlier this year on Record Store Day, "Who Have I Become" and "Fear of My Identity." You can listen to "Fear of My Identity" below.

“Bird on a Wire”

Leonard Cohen | 1969

While living on the Greek island of Hydra, Cohen was battling a lingering depression when his girlfriend handed him a guitar and suggested he play something. After spotting a bird on a telephone wire, Cohen wrote this prayer-like song of guilt. First recorded by Judy Collins, it would be performed numerous times by artists incuding Johnny Cash, Joe Cocker and Rita Coolidge. "I'm always knocked out when I hear my songs covered or used in some situation," Cohen told Rolling Stone. "I've never gotten over the fact that people out there like my music."
