Nina Nastasia has released two new tracks, ‘Whatever You Need to Believe’ and ‘Too Soon’. The songs were recorded during the same sessions that produced the singer-songwriter’s latest album, Riderless Horse. Take a listen below.
Speaking about ‘Whatever You Need to Believe’, Nastasia said in a statement: “It can be annoying to hear people talk about what exactly happens to a person when they die and then suggest things to do for that dead person in order for them to smoothly travel to the next destination in the afterlife, so they’re not trapped in a holding pattern. First and foremost, why do I have to take care of their travel plans. And second…well…what exactly have you chosen to have happen?”
Of ‘Too Soon’, she added: “Aging is cruel. Nature is cruel. Beautiful but mean. Unlike this song, I won’t find some tall nice grass to lay myself down in to die. I will go out screaming and kicking. And if science can find some solution for the pains of aging and the bummer of dying, I’ll sign up for the clinical trials, but that’s a different song.”
