Venice Beach duo, EXES have a new EP coming and it's focused on The Art Of Saying Goodbye. While the six-track project is due on October 7, they've offered a preview of their new work with new single 'Dear Home.'

"Dear, Home" is a song for the homesick," frontwoman Allie McDonald says. "It's a song dedicated to the pieces of my heart I left back East. The parts of me still beating in that small town where I grew up. As a nostalgic-romantic, it is one of the most personal songs I've written."

Her musical counterpart Mike Derenzo, who produced the track, had this to add: "Dear, Home' started as a voice memo I got from Allie in the middle of the night. I knew as soon as I heard it that this song was going to be special. Over the next 2 months I travelled to New York and San Francisco [my home] all the while working on the song. Each place I visited seemed to add new life and perspective into the track. Eventually we returned to Allie's home in the Pacific Palisades to add the finishing touches with her award-winning violinist uncle. The song has always reminded me that no matter how far you travel or radical your life gets there are always constants in our lives to remind us of who we really are and who we truly love/care about."
