Tomberlin has shared another single from her upcoming full-length, i don’t know who needs to hear this…. ‘tap’ follows recent offerings ‘happy accident’ and ‘idkwntht’, both of which were named our songs of the week. Check out a video for the track below.
“It was January 2021, my first pandemic winter in New York, when I wrote this song,” Sarah Beth Tomberlin explained in a statement. “I was investigating the things that help in connecting me to myself. I was taking a lot of big 10, sometimes 14 mile walks through the city trying to find my center, while also trying to get ideas and inspiration flowing. It was quite a lonely, uninspiring time and lots of disconnection, so on my walks I tended to observe parts of city life that people were lacking in or sometimes risking for connection. This song shifts through scenes of what does connect and disconnect me from myself. It’s funny because I think releasing music to be consumed by the public does both very strongly for me.”
Tomberlin’s new album, the follow-up to her 2018 debut At Weddings and 2020’s Projections EP, is due out April 29 via Saddle Creek.
