California Nights is the third studio album by American indie rock duo Best Coast, released on May 1, 2015 by Harvest Records.[2]It was produced by Wally Gagel, who also produced the duo's 2013 EP Fade Away.[2]
The band announced the album along with tour dates and the release of a "dreamlike" video directed by Adam Harding for the title track, which also served as the lead single.[3] On the band's official website, singer-songwriter Bethany Cosentino described the band's approach to the making of the album, stating: "In LA, there's a real darkness that you don't see unless you know where to look. That's a theme we very consciously decided to explore and play with when making this record. We related to the idea that things may look or sound fun and upbeat, but they may not actually always be that way."[4]
A video for second single "Heaven Sent" directed by Lana Kim and Cosentino was released on April 1, 2015.[5] Third single "Feeling Ok" followed in mid-April, which the duo performed on Conan on May 5.[6]
