Widowspeak have released a new song called ‘While You Wait’, lifted from their forthcoming album The Jacket. The track, which follows lead single ‘Everything Is Simple’, comes with a video directed by OTIUM and featuring the band’s longtime touring bassist Willy Muse. Check it out below.
“The song itself is maybe one of the more narrative remnants from when the album might have been a true concept record,” the duo of Molly Hamilton and Robert Earl Thomas explained in a statement. “It’s sort of the opening credits scene, when the main character is going to their job and seeing the shift change of the city in the very early morning. Then in the second verse, they are leaving work and seeing nightlife start up again. Those simultaneous experiences are like cities within a city; there’s always someone ending their day as someone else’s is starting. It’s also about the day-to-day work that supports more creative pursuits, and how when that’s out of balance it can feel like you are on the outside looking in.”
The Jacket is set for release on March 11 via Captured Tracks.
