POND returned with another spirited single, “Hang a Cross on Me.” The new track is the fourth off the upcoming deluxe edition of their album, 9, out May 20 via Spinning Top Records.

Speaking on the single, POND frontman Nick Allbrook shares:

“’Hang A Cross On Me‘ was made infinitely cooler by the return of Cowboy John – musician, poet, fashion icon, Poon’s Head Studio regular, legend. We got Cowboy to feature on ‘Hobo Rocket‘ back in the day. In both songs he insisted on improvising his own lyrics and on only doing one take, and both, of course, were perfect. He meditates on love, life, the universe and everything with his signature fantastical surrealism and cosmic wonder. It’s always a pleasure working with him. He is incredibly rare and brilliant and we love him.”

Nick Allbrook, Vocalist
