Christopher Owens, frontman of the indie-pop group Girls, will release a special single on Dec. 6, both digitally and as a red, heart-shaped 7-inch vinyl. The song, entitled “Lawrence,” is Owens’ personal tribute to English musician Lawrence, the leader of Felt, Denim and Go Kart Mozart.
According to Owens, he completed work on “Lawrence” in 2008 — the song is only now seeing a public release. There will only be 1,000 copies of the limited-edition 7-inch single, which follows on the heels of Girls’ acclaimed sophomore album Father, Son, Holy Ghost.
A week ago, Owens sent the song to Lawrence with a personal note attached. In the note, he sang his muse’s praises and professed his love for Felt, adding the song was for him and encouraging him to do whatever he wanted with it:
