Today, The Lemon Twigs announce the release of their fourth studio album, “Everything Harmony”, out on May 5th, 2023, via Captured Tracks. “Everything Harmony” is a tour de force that arrives as a full realization of the brother duo of Brian and Michael D’Addario’s distinct blend of sunny pop vocals with sophisticated acoustic-folk melodies and rich textures, inspired by the likes of Simon & Garfunkel, Arthur Russell and Moondog.
The album swings between moments of depression and isolation to episodes of dizzying euphoria. It was written, recorded, produced and engineered entirely by The Lemon Twigs across Manhattan, Brooklyn and San Francisco’s Hyde Street Studios.
The announcement is accompanied by the affectionate new single “Any Time of Day”, which follows the recent “Corner of My Eye”. According to director Ambar Navarro, the video for “Any Time of Day” was “heavily inspired by 60s television live performances and focusing on the minimal set pieces, referencing The Carpenters, Tom Petty, and especially The Monkees’ TV Show and the absurdist/surreal comedy of that era”.
Watch the video for the new single “Any Time of Day” below.
Of the track, The Lemon Twigs say: “We were hired to write material and act in an interactive TV show about an imaginary 70s brother band. We wrote a bunch of KISS type songs for the soundtrack plus this one. This one wasn’t quite right for the show, so we held it back. For a month in 2019, we filmed all 8 episodes. In the fallout of a high profile lawsuit taken by the company against Quibi, the show was shelved and remains on someone’s hard drive, if not completely erased to save space. The song’s about the cyclical nature of life. Everything goes on and on. Out with the old, in with the new”!

The prodigiously-talented duo first emerged as The Lemon Twigs in 2016 with their debut LP “Do Hollywood”, whose show stopping melodies mined from every era of rock quickly earned fans in Elton John, Questlove and Jack Antonoff. “Go to School”, the ambitious 15-track coming-of-age opus, followed in 2018 and solidified the band’s reputation for building grand walls of sound around an audacious concept.
2020’s “Songs for the General Public” earned critical praise from NPR, Vice, Teen Vogue, Stereogum and more with the pair recently working on Weyes Blood’s two most recent albums including 2022’s “And in the Darkness, Hearts Aglow”, as well as with classic rock hero Todd Rundgren on his most recent record, “Space Force”, and with Tim Heidecker on his “Fear of Death” project.
In the support of the new album The Lemon Twigs will play a series of shows across the UK and EU starting in Amsterdam on May 20th.
