My new record is finally out today, and available in all the places. I am so thankful, and kind of astounded, that making music still feels as essential and charged and life-saving now as it did when I began. Songwriting remains a strange tethering of extreme loneliness and extreme connectedness. Thank you to everyone who has listened so far, and especially those who’ve gotten in touch to tell me so. Chekhov said (or at least George Saunders said that Chekhov said) that the purpose of art is to “prepare us for tenderness”. My hope for these songs is that they help you stay tender.
