Alex G Releases Video for New Song ‘Blessing’

    Alex G has released a new song called ‘Blessing’. The single, which he co-produced with Jacob Portrait, arrives alongside a  Zev Magasis-directed music video. Check it out below, and scroll down for Alex G’s just-announced tour dates.

    Talking about the track with Hanuman Welch on Apple Music 1, Alex G said: “So, I was up pretty early one morning because I couldn’t sleep and I started playing guitar and wrote this song really quickly. I guess something special about it is… once I demo’d it out and showed it to my band we all recorded it together at this studio in Upstate New York. We had never done that before. Everything at once in the room together. The song is chopped up. The instrumentals were all done live, which is kinda unique I guess. To be honest, I wrote it so quick. Maybe lack of sleep helped write it.”

    Alex G recently released his soundtrack for We’re All Going to the World’s Fair. The Philadelphia musician’s latest studio album, House of Sugar, came out in 2019.
