Chromatics: I Want to Be Alone

It's been a few months since the last time Chromatics dropped an individual track out of nowhere, and this time the surprise has not only to do with the unexpected release itself, but with a couple more factors as well.

The beautiful and very much melodious, I Want To Be Alone, finds the band taking a turn toward a completely acoustic sound, and like that wasn't enough of a head-turner, the song is a cover of the great Jackson C. Frank’s, Dialogue (I Want to Be Alone). Frank was one of the greatest obscure singer-songwriters of his time who released his sole album in 1965, produced by another great, Paul Simon. Jackson C. Frank battled depression and a schizophrenia for many years, and died in 1999, poor and underappreciated.

Compliments and accolades naturally go to Chromatics, not only for the fine delivery, but for the superb selection for a cover too.
