Strand of Oaks Releases Gentle-Hearted New Track, “Ruby”

Timothy Showalter, aka Strand of Oaks, has released a nostalgic, tender new single titled “Ruby” from his forthcoming album Eraserland, due March 22 from Dead Oceans.

Showalter said of the “happiest song” he’s ever made, “Ruby isn’t a person, rather the concept of time and memory and how with every passing year it becomes nonlinear. In the past I would’ve dismissed such unabashedly pure optimism, but I’ve been through a lot and I’ve learned to appreciate those rare moments of light.”

Watch the touching visual accompaniment for “Ruby” below, which was edited from the Showalter family’s old home video footage, and check out Strand of Oak’s 2017 Paste Studio session and tour dates, included further down.
