NPR Premieres New Demo
The cat's outta the bag! I'm making a new record with Mike Mogis and some of the good folks of Bright Eyes/The Faint/Cursive, but first, NPR is premiering this exclusive bedroom demo of a new song called "If You're Gonna Build A Wall." The track is my reaction to being stuck home with a broken finger and bombarded by the 24-hour news cycle. It's just a sketch of what it will become in the studio, but the social and political issues in it are ones that have been on my mind a lot lately, and I don't think I'm alone in that, so I felt compelled to share it now. Hope you enjoy and share it, too. I'm on the road for the next month with David Wax Musem for the next month, so come say hi!
