So far this week, Passion Pit have released two new songs, “Somewhere Up There” and “Inner Dialogue.” The singles promote not a new album, but a new company: Passion Pit main man Michael Angelakos is launching a venture called the Wishart Group, which aims to provide “legal, educational, and healthcare services” to musicians. (In the past, Angelakos has been open about how his own mental health struggles have affected his career.)
Passion Pit’s most recent album was 2015’s Kindred. Most recently, the band released a “Christmas visual album” titled Merry Christmas, Mr. Fields. Hear the multi-part “Somewhere Up There” and bouncy “Inner Dialogue” below.
Update, February 15: Passion Pit’s Wishart Group YouTube channel has shared a third new track, “I’m Perfect.” Find it below.
Update 2, February 21: Over the weekend, Passion Pit shared three more songs—”Moonbeam,” “Hey K,” and “You Have the Right”—for a total of six new tracks, all tagged “#seaoflove.” It would appear we’re halfway to a new Passion Pit album, or at least a YouTube-exclusive EP. Hear ‘em all below.
Update 3, February 23: A seventh new song, “The Undertow (demo version),” has popped up overnight. Scroll on down.
Update 4, February 28: An eighth new track, the spacey, wordless “TSOL” (that would be short for “Tremendous Sea of Love”) appeared this afternoon. It’s below.
Update 5, February 29: Track nine is here. Find “To the Otherside” at the bottom of this post.
