Asher White Announces New Album, Unveils New Single ‘Downstate Prairie’

    Asher White has announced a new album, Home Constellation Study, which will be co-released on June 28 by Ba Da Bing and Feeding Tube. Following last year’s New Excellent Woman, the LP includes the new single ‘Downstate Prairie’, which you can hear below.

    “Naive impression of gothic Americana: this is self-flagellating screed about living in cities that feel very remote from the rest of the state; a sort of tongue-in-cheek fantasy about what southern illinois might seem like to a comfortable chicagoan,” White explained in a statement. “A lot of city slickers and art types (myself very much included) are very interested in the Romance of Farm Life. So this is a sensual, volatile debate. It’s been suggested to me that this is also an angry break-up song. ends with a passage from ‘Late Air’ by the highly cosmopolitan but deeply sympathetic poet Elizabeth Bishop.”
