Speedy Ortiz shares new track “DTMFA” for Adult Swim Singles
Speedy Ortiz recently announced a new string of headlining tour dates behind their recent album Twerp Verse, and now they’ve added a new single to their catalogue to mark the occasion. “DTMFA” is a catchy, riff-filled song that Sadie Dupuis has had on the back burner for awhile. The songwriter reportedly considered it for her 2016 solo album Slugger, and then again for Speedy’s latest LP, but it never quite made the cut.
Now, the song finally has a home. The band has let it out into the world as part of the Adult Swim Singles Program, which releases a new song by a different artist each week. And before you rack your brain trying to figure out what the acronymic title means, it’s a reference writer Dan Savage’s catchphrase “Dump The Motherfucker Already,” a sentiment Dupuis clearly feels strongly about.
Listen to “DTMFA” below. Speedy Ortiz plays the First Unitarian Church on November 28 with Palberta. Find more information on the XPN Concert Calendar.
