Washed Out shares another absolute gem from his new visual album Mister Mellow, out later this month on Stones Throw. "Hard to Say Goodbye" is an infectious jazz-inflected summer jam with a disco groove and a breezy, luminous vibe that belies Ernest Greene's darker, wistful lyrical sentiment. It's also another gleaming representation of the record's incredibly vivid detail, and of Greene's evolution as a producer -- and more specifically, as a beat-maker in the classic Stones Throw tradition -- while those unmistakable vintage Washed Out vocals will have his day-ones swooning. Look for this one to be ubiquitous on discerning dancefloors and everywhere else by about mid-summer.

Mister Mellow is out 6/30. As we've mentioned a time or two, we're honored to have Washed Out not only headlining this year's GvsB VI show in August at the Bomb Factory, but also co-curating the lineup. Get tickets here.
