Widowspeak: The Jacket

Widowspeak have just released the title track and matching video off their upcoming sixth studio album, The Jacket, which will be released on March 11, 2022 via Captured Tracks.

The band's excellent combination of dreampop and contemporary Americana is practiced brilliantly once again as the song attracts through its delicate vocals and twangy instrumentals, being tough to compare to anything else in today's alternative rock.

Widowspeak comment on the new song: "The Jacket is about things we choose, dress up in and adopt as symbols of who we are. Things that become objects loaded with meaning until we eventually lose or discard them, grow out of them.  It’s a literal jacket in the song, and in the context of the storyline represents all the cliches (imagined and real) of being in a band, rock and roll, youth, projecting “cool” (or thinking you do), and believing in the power of symbols and costume to help find and define your true self.  Eventually you move on from the moment, and the sorts of places and experiences and relationships tied to that time, when the jacket was your favorite thing in the world and felt like a part of you.  It’s hard to let go. But you notice you aren’t that person anymore. The jacket, and everything it represented, was left behind somewhere along the way."

The video for the song, created by OTIUM, stars Robert Earl Thomas the bizarre figure who wanders a southwestern cityscape in a sequence of strange and everyday scenes.
