More Info:

dad sports who released their debut EP I AM JUST A BOY LEAVE ME ALONE !!! on Grand Jury Music in 2021 have returned today with their first new single in over two years, “take yr time.” Their new single eschews the project’s previous guitar-driven songs for a mostly electronic composition; using vocal distortion to create the “guitar” sounds and stretching a lone organ sample to lead the track, the new track is a kissoff to dad sports’ previous work and a transition into this new iteration of the project, which is now solely helmed by Miguel Plante. Plante considers dad sports’ past work as artifacts of a former self all while wrestling with the notion of letting go; contending with the public’s consumption of those pieces of yourself that no longer feel relevant and finding pride in “take yr time.” Grand Jury Music will be releasing dad sports’  I AM JUST A BOY LEAVE ME ALONE !!! EP on vinyl for the first time, with an expanded tracklisting including early dad sports singles as well as “take yr time.” Find the vinyl art and tracklisting below.

Speaking to the new single, and new chapter, Miguel Plante writes;
“i wrote this song right after releasing my last project in 2021 when i felt stuck and unsure where to go next.  i shelved it and kept if for myself, listening to it when i needed a reminder that i am allowed to take time to make art i am proud of. a sort of comfort song for just myself. unplugging from music for the last couple of years has given me time to reflect on why i make music, and for who. the process of creating is so opaque and abstract; it seems hard to feel like you are progressing when you are not always coming out the other side with something to show for it. this song sort of acts as a celebration of the idea that your pace can only be set by you. take your time, you'll be alright.”
