The couple Alaina Moore and Patrick Riley announced another album by their band Tennis. Pollen will be released in February 2023 and has as its first sample the track “One Night with the Valet”.
The band's sixth album was produced by the duo and will arrive on February 10, 2023 via their own label, Mutually Detrimental.
About this new work and the title, Alaina Moore wrote:
We wanted to write a big album, something suited for radio, but our songs don’t follow conventional pop structures. Instead of choruses with universal themes, I write with a specificity that is new to me, narrowing in on the smallest details of our lives. The more we try to broaden our scope, the more we turn inward.
We named the album POLLEN. It is about small things with big consequences: a particle, a moment, a choice. It is me in a fragile state; sometimes inhabited freely, sometimes reacted against. It is striving to remain in a moment without slipping into dread. It is about the way I can be undone by a very small thing.
