Car Seat Headrest has just released Commit Yourself Completely, a 9-track live album featuring versions of the band’s biggest hits from 2016’s critically acclaimed Teens Of Denial and 2018’s Twin Fantasy. The album also features the first recorded cover version of Frank Ocean’s “Ivy,” a staple in the band’s set.
Frontman Will Toledo vividly described the experience of performing these songs and selecting which ones to include in a press release:
“We recorded every show we did that year, and I went through about 50 of them to get the final tracklist for this album. This isn’t necessarily the best possible version of each track, but it’s some of the most fun we’ve had on stage. I particularly remember the show we did in the small French town of Amiens, maybe the smallest show we did that year, and how great it felt to be up in people’s faces with everyone plugging in to the music right away.”
In addition to the album, the group has also released a video for “Fill in the Bank,” performed at Columbus, Ohio.
