John Cale Releases New Song ‘Night Crawling’

    John Cale has shared a new song, ‘Night Crawling’, alongside an accompanying video. The track arrives ahead of a run of shows set to take place this fall. Check out the Mickey Miles-animated visual below.

    “It’s been a helluva past 2 years and I’m glad to finally share a glimpse of what’s coming ahead,” Cale said in a statement. “There was this period around mid-late 70s when David and I would run into each other in NY. There was plenty of talk about getting some work done but of course we’d end up running the streets, sometimes until we couldn’t keep a thought in our heads, let alone actually get a song together! One night we managed to meet up for a benefit concert where I taught him a viola part so we could perform together.”

    He continued: “When I wrote ‘Night Crawling,’ it was a reflective moment of particular times. That kind of NYC that held art in its grip, strong enough to keep it safe and dangerous enough to keep it interesting. I always figured we’d have another go at the two of us recording together, this time without the interference of being perpetually off our heads! The thing about creating music is the ability to divine a thought or feeling even when reality says it’s a logical impossibility.”

    Back in 2020, Cale shared the solo track ‘Lazy Day’ as well as the Kelly Lee Owens collaboration ‘Corner of My Sky’.
