Fun fact: When Christopher Owens releases another solo album, he’ll have put out more music under his own name than he did as the frontman of Girls. Owens released his sophomore solo album A New Testament last year, and today, he’s shared a new song from “a forthcoming album.” We don’t know anything about the album yet, but “Selfish Feeling” is a good sign. It’s a compact, pretty chug of a song, a jangly power-pop number with some serious Westerbergian self-loathing in Owens’ delivery. If Owens has a whole album worth of songs this good, it’ll be his best solo album in a walk. Listen to “Selfish Feelings” below.
I’d still like Girls to get back together, but that’s a particularly selfish feeling.
