Maia Friedman of Dirty Projectors and Coco has signed to Last Gang Records and shared her first solo track, ‘Where The Rocks Are’. The song comes paired with a music video directed by V Haddad and will appear on her upcoming debut album, which is due next year. Check it out below.
“‘Where The Rocks Are’ was written in the weeks after watching ‘Close Encounters of the Third Kind’ for the first time,” Friedman explained in a statement. “The imagery of the characters climbing the rock formation toward a great, unknown force really resonated with me. It felt symbolic of the search for peace, comfort, love and contentment, and of the obstacles one encounters along the way. The lines ‘Where the rocks are / going to it // Pour me over / show me how to begin’ speak of surrender, of giving oneself over to the invisible forces at work around us. A voice says, ‘let this flow through me in the way that best benefits myself and the people around me, who I love,’ and I do my best to listen.”
