Twin Peaks Share Wistful Standalone Single "Our World"

Twin Peaks  are hot off the release of their latest album Lookout Low, which came out this September, making the unexpected release of their latest standalone single, “Our World,” that much more exciting. The song leans into Twin Peaks’ alt-country side with a beautiful arrangement and message—hardly a b-side.

Lookout Low marked a growth in Twin Peaks’ sound as they moved into the realm of classic rock ‘n’ roll—with heavy Stones influences across. “Our World,” in comparison, feels much more Uncle Tupelo than anything else. The track is defined by its acoustic guitar-picking and a mellow slide guitar taking the edge off. Vocalist Caiden Lake James stays in his lower register during the chorus, singing the reassuring lines, “No matter what the people say / It’s still our world / I still wanna wake up.”

“Our World” was born out of the recording sessions for Lookout Low, but stands out distinctly from the songs on the record. James explains his inspiration for writing the track and why it didn’t make the cut for the album:

One day last year amidst some moment of (the constant) political turmoil or another, I read a tweet Connor posted encouraging all that despite the current state of affairs, “it’s still our world.” I wrote the lyrics for “Our World” directly after. Despite not fitting into the sequence of Lookout Low, it’s one of our favorites we recorded and we’re happy to share it now.

Twin Peak’s latest record was released this September and is available here. You can listen to “Our World” below, plus the band’s 2014 Daytrotter session, and find Twin Peaks’ tour dates further down.
