Will Butler and Sister Squares have put out a new single from their forthcoming self-titled album, which is out September 22 on Merge. It follows previous entries ‘Long Grass’, ‘Arrow of Time’, and ‘Willows’. Check out a lyric video for it below.
“This is one of the ‘dream songs’ on the record,” Butler explained in a statement. “Emotion in dreams; dreams in reality; tired and confused. ‘Stop talking; there’s nothing to say’; not sure if it functions as a dismissal ‘Stop!’, or as a sign of love ‘You don’t have to say it; I already know’; I think, like a lot of communication between people who love each other—a little of both? Like, this song is full of fear; someone expressing fear to their partner, and the partner being like, ‘There’s nothing to fear, and also, shut up, quit being crazy.’ That’s not exactly it, but there’s something of that here.”
