John Cale - All Summer Long

Of all the artists out there ex-Velvet Underground member John Cale is probably one of the least likely to release a summer single. Or so I and many others thought. "All Summer Long" was actually written for Cale's 2012 album Shifty Adventures In Nookie Wood, but he didn't think it fit with the rest of the album, which was probably a good call. Here's what he has to say about the matter:

"When writing for Shifty Adventures I noticed an apparent theme of claustrophobic darkness and so of course, I felt at home in that place," Cale said in a statement. "There [was] a handful of songs unfinished. One in particular was me dreaming about a breeze, space and light. Recalling those early days in my sticky, sweltering NYC flat — how I'd heard summer from the West Coast — thinking how the California landscape informed a vibe that churned out Brian Wilson, Herb Alpert and that strange, sexy breeze in your ears. Since the album was predominantly located in the darker, eerie swamps of Nookie Wood, it seemed like the wrong place to put this song, but now, just feels right to let it out."

So now, "All Summer Long" is released as a stand-alone single in all its breezy wonderfulness, available for download as of a few days ago. Click the link below to hear it or go directly to iTunes or another shop to buy it.
