Ty Segall and White Fence have released a trippy single called “Good Boy,” the first track off the album Joy, due in July.

The song is a psychedelic tip of the hat to The Beatles, like a way-out Magical Mystery Tour meets “Mr. Kite” off Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band. And it’s an all-inclusive-type song, paying no mind to gender or, even, to continuous rhythm for that matter.

“Good Boy” is an interesting composition and one can’t help but think that on the Joy album it might be a bridge song between a rocker and a fast pace. It’s an almost perfectly mixed and mastered song, to be appreciated with a good quality set of headphones.

Segall and White Fence Collaborations

Segall and his partner in sound, White Fence, also known as Tim Presley, have previously worked together on the 2012 album, Hair.

Last time, though, the guys weren’t playing show and tell with pets, presumably, Fanny Dog and a fluffy feline (we *don’t* know what her name is). The cat, being kissed by White Fence, takes up almost a quarter of the cover photo.

Joy will drop July 20 on Drag City. Until then Segall will be on tour in Europe. Segall and White Fence play Desert Daze in October and northern California dates around that time. Segall goes off on a solo acoustic tour after that
