Particle Kid announces new album Time Capsule, listen to first single now

Particle Kid, aka Micah Nelson’s experimental, psychedelic, future-folk project, returns today with “Someone Else’s Dream,” feat. J Mascis, Sunny War + Paul Bushnell, to announce their third full-length, double-album, Time Capsule, for an April 22 release. Pre-order Time Capsule here.

The album will be available digitally and on CD along with a limited run of 20 actual time capsules, hand-crafted from hempcrete by Micah. Inside each one will be a thumb drive including the record, videos, printed album artwork, industrial hemp seeds that he cultivated himself, and a physical ticket to a Particle Kid concert in 20 years. Then people can fill the time capsule with their own mementos and reconnect with it decades from now. “It feels like we are experiencing a major plot point in history for better or worse, and the idea of collaging all this music into a literal time capsule was interesting,” he says. “It’s like an interactive art piece.”

Following the November release of the “Velocirapture (The Serpent Flew),” feat. Sean Ono Lennon, which led Rolling Stone to note, “Micah Nelson and Sean Ono Lennon speak the same language: psychedelic, experimental, exploratory, and just a little unhinged,” “Someone Else’s Dream” captures Nelson in a flash of inspiration.

Discussing the track, Micah states, “I remember writing this song in about 5 minutes sitting on a couch one day – one of those rare songs that just happens, and sort of writes itself. It started out with a more swingy, folky, acoustic guitar feel, as a little voice memo and then, as a studio recording, it evolved into more of a fuzzed out shoe-gazy thing, or kinda somewhere in between. Paul Bushnell and I did all the basic tracking together at Hen House and then later Sunny War sang beautifully on it.
