Cassandra Jenkins has shared a new song titled ‘Hard Drive’. It’s the second single from the New York-based singer-songwriter’s upcoming album, An Overview On Phenomenal Nature. Check it out below.
“I’m happy to be releasing ‘Hard Drive’ on a day when we’re collectively turning the page in America,” Jenkinds said in a statement referencing yesterday’s Inauguration Day celebrations. “A lot of ‘Phenomenal Nature’ was reflecting on ways to heal during the Trump presidency when I was looking for inner strength and change. I hope today we can take a deep breath, count to three, let go of the last 4 years and start to look ahead at the next chapter.”
“This song is a ride through a strange month in my life in between two tours – the cancelled Purple Mountains tour and a West Coast run opening for Craig Finn,” she added. “It’s part travel diary and part spiritual character study, weaving together encounters with a security guard at the Met Breuer, a bookkeeper in Topanga Canyon, my New York City driving instructor, and a psychic at a birthday party. The opening line is pulled from a voice memo of the security guard who pulled me aside to share her thoughts on the exhibition on view, Mrinalini Mukherjee‘s ‘Phenomenal Nature’, and the song closes with Peri Lyons, the psychic who foretells ‘this year’s gonna be a good one.’ And I’m still wondering who, deep down, doesn’t want to hear that, even if that year was 2020?”
An Overview On Phenomenal Nature arrives February 19 via Ba Da Bing. Previously, Jenkins shared the album’s lead single ‘Michelangelo’, which was one of our favourite songs that week.
