Wednesday have shared another single from their forthcoming album Rat Saw God. ‘Bath County’, which follows previous offerings ‘Chosen to Deserve’ and ‘Bull Believer’, arrives with an accompanying video directed by the band’s Karly Hartzman. Watch and listen below.
“This is a song I wrote on a porch in Bath County, Virginia when me and [lead guitarist] Jake [Lenderman] were visiting Jake’s moms hometown,” Hartzman explained in a statement. “It includes some imagery I saw on that trip as well as a description of a guy we saw overdosed in a parking lot early one morning on our way to Dollywood.”
“The video I made myself is an homage to PJ Harvey’s video for ‘Man-Size’,” she added. “I’ve never seen someone emit as much confidence as she does in that video. I wanted to pretend for a minute I possessed that attitude but it was harder than it looks! Endless respect for Peej.”
Rat Saw God is set for release on April 7 via Dead Oceans. Revisit our Artist Spotlight interview with Wednesday.
