Mac DeMarco stopped by the Tonight Show to perform new song ‘All Of Our Yesterdays’ live for Jimmy Fallon.
The new song, a track from his upcoming album Here Comes The Cowboy, follows the previously released number ‘Nobody’ as he ramps up the new record which will be out in May.
Introducing the news, DeMarco said: “Hi everybody, Mac here. Here’s my new song, it’s called ‘All Of Our Yesterdays.’ This was the first song I wrote in the sequence of songs that appear on my new record. Most of the rest of the songs were written in November right before we went on tour in Europe, but this one’s probably from about seven or eight months before that.
“I left it sitting with only one verse done for a long time, then finished it up while I was writing the rest of the record. The phrase ‘all of our yesterdays’ comes from the play Macbeth. Also I think there’s a Star Trek episode from 1969 with the same title; very cool.”
Here he is live on Fallon:
The new album, which arrives as a follow-up to 2017’s This Old Dog, continues a theme of watching and listening to DeMarco grow up as person. While he doesn’t chose to be particuarly elicit in his lyrics, the development of his melodies and production has become the maturing edge to DeMarco in recent years. “This one is my cowboy record,” he previously said of the record.
“Cowboy is a term of endearment to me, I use it often when referring to people in my life. Where I grew up there are many people that sincerely wear cowboy hats and do cowboy activities. These aren’t the people I’m referring to.”
