Propelled by singer-songwriter-drummer Darren Weiss, PAPA authored two albums (2013’s Tender Madness and 2016’s Kick at the Dust), an EP, and live performances measured in sweat rather than attendance. Just when you thought Weiss, whose credentials as a heavy hitter are unassailable, might resign PAPA to the past, something new would always pop up.

New single “Barcelona” is PAPA’s first release in a couple of years and finds Weiss, who has been busy as a touring and session drummer with the likes Lana Del Rey, Albert Hammond Jr., and Perfume Genius (among others), having made good use of his time during lockdown. PAPA's forthcoming record, Dig Yourself Or Dig A Hole, is due out this fall.
