Fenne Lily Unveils New Song ‘Dawncolored Horse’

    Fenne Lily has shared a new track from her upcoming album Big Picture, which was led by the single ‘Lights Light Up’. Listen to ‘Dawncolored Horse’ below.

    The new song takes its title from a Richard Brautigan poem, ‘The Horse That Had a Flat Tire’. In a press release, Lily explained, “[Brautigan] talks about the woman he loves as being a ‘breathing castle.’ I truly don’t know what that means, but for me he’s distilled a feeling of absolute closeness. When you know someone so well it feels like you’re almost living inside them. That can be claustrophobic, but before it’s too much, it’s incredible.”

    “A lot of the music I was listening to while I was writing seemed to be old kind of country stuff; the album Anymore For Anymore by Ronnie Lane and Slim Change was a big one (‘hear Roll On Babe from ’74’) — anything that sounded warm and comfortable, just people in a room playing what came most naturally,” she added. “When I brought this song to the band it easily fell into that sort of world — it felt stable, which is cool for a song that came from a place of total instability.” The song features Joe Sherrin on lead guitar, Kane Eagle on bass, James Luxton on drums, Phil Cook on bango, and Brad Cook on mellotron.

    Big Picture is due for release April 14 through Dead Oceans.
