Companion, the duo of identical twin sisters Sophia and Jo Babb, have shared a new single, ‘If I Were A Ghost’. It’s lifted from their forthcoming debut album, Second Day of Spring, which is out May 27 and includes the early tracks ‘How Could I Have Known’, ’23rd Street’, and ‘Snowbank’. Check out a live performance video for ‘If I Were a Ghost’ below.
Speaking about the track, Sophia Babb said in a statement: “Jo and I lost our father when we were 13, and in many ways, we lost our mom too. She was never the same after he passed. And though we felt empathy for her grief, it was hard to navigate adolescence while also growing up with a grieving, broken mothe. After a particularly hard day where the empathy wasn’t coming easily, I started writing in an attempt to understand what it would be like to lose the love of your life & father of your children all at once. Thus came ‘If I Were a Ghost’ — a song about trying to work through grief, loneliness, and longing.”
