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.

“American Girl”

Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers | 1976

It turns out that a single with "American" in its title--recorded on the Fourth of July during the nation's Bicentennial, no less--can actually sell better in Britain. Coupled with the Heartbreakers' flair for Byrds jangle and Animals hooks, though, is Tom Petty's native-Florida drawl that keeps this classic grounded at home. Petty dispelled rumors that the song was about a suicidal student, explaining that the inspiration came from when he was 25 and used to salute the highway traffic outside his apartment window. "It sounded like the ocean to me," he recalled. "That was my ocean. My Malibu. Where I heard the waves crash, but it was just the cars going by."
