Along with the album's announcement, the trio have shared their first single, "Of the Lit Backyards". The piece, written by McCombs, was composed as a meditation on the adaptability of human beings, turning the glow of newly reconfigured outdoor spaces safer to gather in during lockdowns into swaying western Americana.
