Fremantle rockers Eskimo Joe are gearing up to release their first new single since 2013 next week, and they’ve now given fans a sneak peek of what’s to come in just a matter of days.
First announced last week, the new single serves as the group’s first piece of new music since the release of 2013’s Wastelands. Titled “Say Something”, Eskimo Joe shared the news via social media, with the current climate seeming to provide an appropriate backdrop for the song to be released.
“We are sooo excited to announce that after seven years we are releasing a brand new song!!” the group wrote on Instagram. “It has been such a joy to get back together as a band and work on some brand new music.
“‘Say Something’ is a statement, a call to act with humanity, without prejudice or violence towards each other or the planet.”

Now, with just over a week to go until the song is released, guitarist Stu MacLeod has taken to Instagram to provide fans with a small teaser clip of the new track.
“We’re too excited to wait another ten days, so here’s a little snippet of our new single ‘Say Something’,” MacCleod wrote. “Feels so good to get new music out to y’all! Ten days to go!”
While “Say Something” serves as the first piece of new music from the group since 2013, it’s far from their first release in some time. In fact, the last few years have seen Eskimo Joe sharing a series of reissues, with their first four albums being re-released with demos, rarities, and live tracks added to the end.
With the reissue of A Song is a City being unleashed only a matter of weeks ago, the only thing that could make this roll-out all the more special is the announcement of a new record. It remains to be seen whether “Say Something” will be the first taste of album number seven, but fans have their fingers crossed.
