News: Ty Segall Unveils “Feel Good” Music Video ft. Denée Segall and Announces North American Tour

Updated: Oct 5, 2021

wo weeks ago, Ty Segall surprise-released Harmonizer, his first new album since 2019, out now digitally via Drag City and physically in October. Today, he presents a music video for one of its standouts, “Feel Good,” and announces a North American tour with the Freedom Band. “Feel Good” is one of Harmonizer’s two songs to feature lyrics and vocals by Denée Segall. The music video, directed and produced by Joshua Erkman, sees the Segalls taking a late night drive between slick scenes of technicolor grandeur. “Don’t be afraid / I can show you the way / I’ll be your right hand,” Denée’s cool vocals intone over the track’s scorching guitars. It’s a prime example of Harmonizer’s transcendent energy as distorted synth and beats drive the chorus. By the end of “Feel Good,” Denée takes the driver’s seat with Ty by her side, content to see where she takes him.

Denée comments, “’Feel Good’ is about allowing oneself to be confident and unrestrained in regard to whatever makes them feel good, be it emotionally, physically, or beyond. It’s also about extending this sentiment to another who might desire this same sort of freedom, but needs a little encouragement. It’s an ode to the joy that comes from loving and supporting one another unconditionally.

On Harmonizer, Ty glides smoothly into unexpected territory, right where he likes to find himself. It’s a synthtastic production redesign that finds Ty dialing up a wealth of tightly-controlled beats, thick keyboard textures, guitar, and endless harmonies. This glossy sound makes for some of Ty’s cleanest songs and starkest ideas to date, bracing him as he revisits the lonely days and loathsome nights of the alienated, grown-up-wrong soul.

Co-produced by Cooper Crain, Harmonizer is the first recording to be released from Ty’s just-completed Harmonizer Studios. Cooper’s own journey in rhythm, minimalism and DIY mines the depths around Ty’s peerless vocal attack and never-ending search for unfathomably corrosive guitar sounds. With an eye towards precision, feel and explosive mass, The Freedom Band -- Ben Boye, Mikal Cronin, Emmett Kelly, and Charles Moothart -- appear all over Harmonizer, but often one at a time.
