Pink Mountaintops, the exploratory and enigmatic project of Black Mountain frontman Stephen McBean, make their triumphant return after eight years with the announcement of their new album Peacock Poolswhich will see a release this Friday, May 6th, 2022 via their new label home ATO Records. 

In the lead-up, to the release, the band has shared the harmony-heavy and sweetly hedonistic new single “Nikki Go Sudden.” The tune finds McBean serenading Nikki Sudden, the late Swell Maps and Jacobites singer/guitarist, with a gorgeous convergence of twisted nursery rhyme and elegantly debauched mythmaking (e.g., “Hush baby-baby, now don’t you cry/Mama’s gonna buy you some collision time”).

“I wrote that song just after Nikki Sudden died, a tribute to a fallen-rogue unsung hero who existed in his own weird outsider world,” says McBean.
