(Sandy) Alex G shares alternate version of “Bad Man,” announces North American tour Chris Maggio for The FADER

One of the many standout moments on (Sandy) Alex G's phenomenal House of Sugar comes eight tracks deep, when he opts for a cartoonishly Southern accent on "Bad Man." "It started out just acoustic guitar and then I did a version just on piano and it was just so corny every time," Giannascoli told PASTE of the track. "I guess I was just like, ‘Fuck this song. This song is so corny.’ So I just leaned into the corniness as hard as possible."

Today, he's sharing one of those alternate versions, a version that nixes the accent in exchange for a swooping, Americana-indebted palette. Hear it in a new, Zev Magasis-directed video below. Giannascoli has also detailed an upcoming North American tour surrounding his sets at Coachella. Peep all the dates below.
