Julie Byrne has released another song from her forthcoming album, The Greater Wings. ‘Moonless’, which follows previous offerings ‘Summer Glass’ and the title track, is the first song Byrne has ever written and performed on piano. Listen to it below.
“I remember walking through the dune systems on the ocean side of Culatra, the noises of the docks, the scent of tidal flats,” Byrne noted in a statement about ‘Moonless’. “The land itself, as a coastal formation, in a constant state of movement between erosion and growth.”
She added, “Something I love about being a songwriter, especially as a queer woman, is being able to have the last word in my work, becoming myself line by line. This is a breakup song, and it’s the first song I wrote on piano.”
The Greater Wings is due for release on July 7 via Ghostly.
