Real Estate Share New Single "Haunted World"

Real Estate Share New Single "Haunted World"

Real Estate will release their new Daniel Tashian-produced record Daniel next month on February 23. The band previously shared the album’s first single “Water Underground,” in tandem with a music video inspired by and made in collaboration with and featuring the stars of the beloved 1990s Nickelodeon sitcom The Adventures of Pete & Pete. Today Real Estate shares another taste of the forthcoming album with “Haunted World.”  

The chiming guitars and plaintive verses of “Haunted World” summon the band that first emerged to acclaim in 2009, with Martin Courtney doing his best to sing his way around existential confusion. But in the chorus, dexterous instrumental harmonies (that’s Nashville ace Justin Schipper on pedal steel) and faint backing vocals propel the song anew, its tight hook snagging in a second. Tashian suggested they fortify the refrain, and he was right. 

Of the track, Courtney says, "‘Haunted World’ sounds like a 90s sitcom theme to us. Network execs - this song is available and we are ready and willing to sell to the highest bidder. 

We’re super happy with how this one turned out. We had a nice arrangement worked out before we headed to Nashville to record, but it really came to life in the studio. Sometimes a song will surprise you like that." 


Real Estate also announces that they will be playing a “Daniel-Only” album release show at Union Pool in New York Feb, 22, 2024. Admission is free with RSVP but guests must have a first, middle or last name of Daniel (Dan, Danielle, Danny, Daniella, Danielson, etc) to enter. Non-Daniel +1s are allowed. Space is limited; first come, first served. This show is in addition to the band’s extensive Spring North American tour, beginning March in Vancouver and running until May 26 in Atlanta.

Real Estate Daniel

Album | 23rd February 2024

Real Estate’s sixth full-length album Daniel was recorded in an ebullient nine-day spree at RCA Studio A, in Nashville with GRAMMY-winning producer and songwriter Daniel Tashian (Kacey Musgraves). In 11 compulsively tuneful songs, they connect the uninhibited wonder of their earliest work with the earned perspective of adulthood. 

Several days into recording, all five members of Real Estate were discussing album titles when someone suggested “Daniel,” simply because it seemed funny to bestow a human name upon a record. Was it for Daniel Tashian? Maybe. Was it a nod to The Replacements’ Tim? Possibly. Was it the sign of a band that has now been around long enough to take its music seriously without taking itself or its perception too seriously? Absolutely.
