“I originally approached this project wanting to make something that felt very sensuous,” serpentwithfeet said in a statement. “Something a lot softer, a lot more gentle than my previous work.” He added: “I wanted to create something that felt calm and restrained. This was my way of tapping into the energy many deacons possess.”
“I dedicate ‘Fellowship’ to anyone who has had a good friend or been a good friend,” he said of the new track.
DEACON marks the follow-up to serpentwithfeet’s 2018 debut album, soil.
