Parquet Courts’ A. Savage Shares Video for New Song ‘Thanksgiving Prayer’

    Parquet Courts frontman A. Savage signed to Rough Trade Records, marking the announcement with a new single called ‘Thanksgiving Prayer’. It’s produced by John Parish and arrives with a music video directed by Tiff Pritchett. Check it out below, along with Savage’s upcoming tour dates:

    Savage shared the following statement about the new song:

    Well, Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday, and every year on that day I write down some words having to do with gratitude. Some years are better than others, but the last one I celebrated these words just sort of came out of me. It was a pretty special holiday actually, because in fact we were recording this song, but I made everybody take a day off. [Producer] John Parish and his wife Michelle were kind enough to allow me to take over their kitchen to cook the meal for everyone. Dylan [Hadley, drums] and I were the only Americans, so there was a bit of explaining to do. So it was the band, the studio staff and the Parish family, and it was an absolutely lovely day. I was in awe of the kindness and mercy, and that’s what the song is about; being in awe of humans. When I got back to my room I was on such a high so I started writing and this song is what was on the page the next morning, when we recorded it.

    Parquet Courts’ last LP, Sympathy for Life, arrived in 2021.
