If there were a way to make the June come any sooner, I’d do it in a heartbeat. In addition to the promise of perfect weather, the month heralds Smith Westerns’ new album Soft Will, the follow-up to 2011′s Dye It Blonde, out via Mom + Pop on June 25. For those of us who can’t wait till then, the group has released a warm and dreamy track, 3am Spiritual.
 
Packed with calming guitars, playful synths and airy vocals, the song is fitting for those turbulent summer nights when you just can’t fall asleep. Cullen Omori’s youthful, pleading croon seems like a more effective lullaby than infinite sheep-counting. In support of the upcoming album, the band will be embarking on a North American tour this July. Check out the tour dates, and the wonderful “3am Spiritual,” below.
