Today, Cloud Nothings shares a new song from their forthcoming record The Shadow I Remember, due February 26th via Carpark Records. Released alongside a quirky video game, “Nothing Without You” finds the band operating at a breakneck pace without losing any of the songwriting sensibilities or catchiness for which the band is renowned. Following “The Spirit Of” and “Am I Something,” “Nothing Without You” is the third song released from The Shadow I Remember, which finds the band reunited with producer Steve Albini, who helmed the production for their breakout 2012 album Attack On Memory and finds Baldi exploring his place in the world as both a human and band a decade into its career.
Of the song and its accompanying game, Dylan Baldi shares: “‘Nothing Without You’ explores both the negative and positive aspects of dependency, whether it be on a person, a place, an object, or nothing at all. Jesse Jacobs and Vagabond Dog took that concept and filtered it through the ultimate needy creature, the Tamagotchi.”
Video game creator Jesse Jacobs adds: “Put your compassion to the test by providing care and protection to this new species of virtual pet. This fussy animal demands a quality diet, clean living environment, and righteous tunes.”
