London-based singer-songwriter Fauness has previewed her upcoming debut album with a new track called ‘Hours’. It’s the second offering from The Golden Ass, following August’s ‘Mystery’. The LP is due out October 28 via Cascine. Listen to ‘Hours’ below.
“’Hours’ is one of the few songs I’ve made where the lyrics were written after the music,” Cora Gilroy-Ware, aka Fauness, said in a statement. “The pounding nature of the beat made me think of a clock ticking, which reminded me of how I always feel like I’m at war with time, wishing there were more hours, minutes, seconds in the day. I mind myself thinking, if only I could manipulate time, expand and contract it according to what I need and what is required of me. Time is bound up with pleasure, ie, more time to do things you enjoy. This pleasure is the first thing to be sacrificed as the capitalist order makes its cruel demands on our time. Some say time is just as precious as money, but sadly time doesn’t pay the bills.”
