Flock of Dimes (a.k.a. Wye Oak’s Jenn Wasner) has shared a new song titled ‘Price of Blue’. It’s the second single from her upcoming album Head of Roses, which arrives April 2 via Sub Pop. Check it out below, alongside a black-and-white video co-directed by Wasner with Graham Tolbert.
“This song is about trying, and failing, to connect,” Wasner said in a statement about ‘Price of Blue’. “It’s about the ways in which, despite our best efforts, we misunderstand each other, and become so attached to stories that we’re unable to see the truth that’s right in front of us. And it’s about the invisible mark that another person can leave on your body, heart and mind long after their absence. It can be difficult to make sense of the memory of your experience when the reality on the surface is always shifting—when the story you’re telling, or the story you’ve been told, unravels, leaving you with a handful of pieces and no idea how they used to fit together.”
Head of Roses marks Wasner’s second solo LP, following 2016’s If You See Me, Say Yes and last year’s Like So Much Desire EP. The album was produced by Nick Sanborn of Sylvan Esso and features contributions from Jenn’s Wye Oak bandmate Andy Stack, Meg Duffy (Hand Habits), Matt McCaughan (Bon Iver, Lambchop), and Adam Schatz (Landlady). Earlier this month, Flock of Dimes shared the lead single ‘Two’.
