Bethany Cosentino of Best Coast
posted a new song on her band's site yesterday as "a small taste of what's to come." The track entitled "How They Want Me to Be" is a rough demo recorded at Black Iris (the same studio that recorded "Crazy For You") a few months ago. Posting the heartfelt sun-soaked track was Cosentino's way of thanking Best Coast's fans for being so supportive over the past year. While this is a small taste, it'll have to hold us for awhile because in her letter to fans Cosentino mentions that the bands sophomore album is still "very far from away from being created."

"You guys have been some of the most wonderful fans this past year, and I want to thank each and every one of you for supporting Best Coast. When times are rough for me, and I am traveling and not sleeping, and am worried about daily life, it always makes me feel better to know that my fans are out there.
I know I've been talking a lot about our second album, but it's still very far away from being created. I wanted to share a bit of life from recent Best Coast with you guys, so I thought I would post this song for you all to hear as a little teaser for the album.
This song was recorded a few months ago at Black Iris, the same studio we recorded "Crazy For You." This song is not properly mixed, it's mostly a rough studio demo of a song I wrote and wanted to record. I am about 99% sure that this song will get re-recorded and changed up a bit and will end up on our second album. It's called "How They Want Me To Be."
It's just a small taste of what's to come, and I wanted to give you guys something to get excited about since you've been the best fans in the whole world!
I am off to New York to start a weekend of fly in dates, so wish me luck, and I hope you all love this song and I can't wait to record more.
