Hiss Golden Messenger Announce New Album ‘Quietly Blowing It’, Share New Song ‘If It Comes In the Morning’

    Hiss Golden Messenger’s M.C Taylor has announced a new album called Quietly Blowing It. It’s out June 25 via Merge. The prolific Americana artist has also shared a new single, ‘If It Comes In the Morning’. Check it out below and scroll down for the album’s cover artwork and tracklist.

    Taylor said about the new song in a statement:

    ‘If It Comes in the Morning’ was a song that was written in the spring and early summer of 2020. The country was on fire, and I kept thinking to myself, ‘What comes next?’Initially, I didn’t know how much hope to include in the song—I wasn’t feeling particularly hopeful myself in that moment—but I felt that it was important to remember that whatever happened, most of us were going to be fortunate enough to be given another day in which to enact what I feel are the most important and fundamental parts of being alive: joy, love, peace, the willingness to keep moving forward whether the cards fall in our favor or not. And in remembering, at least, that these feelings exist, I suppose it became a song of hope. The Staple Singers and Curtis Mayfield were very good at writing these kinds of songs, and I suppose I was looking to their music as inspiration for ‘If It Comes in the Morning.’ When I got stumped on a verse, I called my friend Anaïs Mitchell, and she got me straightened out. I’m very thankful for her help.

    Quietly Blowing It is the follow-up to 2019’s Terms of Surrender, which earned M.C. Taylor his first-ever Grammy nomination for Best Americana Album. Previously, Hiss Golden Messenger shared the single ‘Sanctuary’.
