Parquet Courts’ A. Savage has unveiled ‘David’s Dead’, the latest preview of his forthcoming LP Several Songs About Fire, ahead of its release on Friday. It follows previous offerings ‘Thanksgiving Prayer’ and ‘Elvis in the Army’. Check it out below.
“What can I say about the song ‘David’s Dead?’ Well I can tell you that it’s a portrait of the block in New York City that I called home for over a decade, each line sort of a tally of things that had changed in that time,” Savage explained in a statement. “I can tell you that David’s passing made some of those changes much more evident than they were before. I can tell you that the last time I saw David I bought him both a black coffee and a can of Crazy Stallion, and that we drank a coffee together on my stoop, but I said ‘see ya later’ when he cracked open the tallboy.”
