The Minks are set to release their newest single, Take It Easy, on May 27th, 2022. This new song was recorded live by John Meehan in a cabin in the woods during the fall of 2021. It was recorded in a mobile studio that John built called Sundial Sound. It will be on a compilation being released in the summer under that same name. It features many other Nashville artists such as Chrome Pony, Hans Condor, and Bee Taylor. 10% of the profits from the compilation will go to Nashville’s W.O. Smith school, which gives music instruction and instruments to children from low-income families. Take It Easy was written about finding some peace amongst the chaos. It’s a breath of fresh air that takes you on a psychedelic trip to better days.
Accompanying the release is a music video that was directed, filmed, and edited by The Minks themselves. It’s a surrealistic, hazy moving picture of silly moments on a sunny day out in the woods of Ashland City.
Take It Easy will be available for streaming and download on all platforms. Limited edition lathe cut 7 inches will be available for pre-order on their website, along with other special merchandise.
