Listen to Annie Blackman’s New Single “The Well”

Days before releasing her new EP Bug, Annie Blackman has unveiled one final single: “The Well,” which follows preceding teasers “Ash” and “Bug.” Paired with a music video directed by Meghan Nash, the Evan Rasch-produced “The Well” is a thoughtful confessional chronicling alienation. “Attention is finite / The well won’t be full / If it for a minute / Hope you did it alone,” Blackman warmly sings atop a foregrounding hypnotic guitar and lingering atmospheric plucks. She endures as one of the best diaristic, heartaching troubadours we’ve got, pairing sorrow with splendid arrangements.

​​“This video started with the idea that I should wear an ill-fitting suit, and the rest eventually followed. ‘The Well’ is a song that describes dissociation. By including a supernatural character in the video, we wanted to relay what it can feel like to be removed from reality. By the end of the video, I’ve sort of reunited with myself by making amends with the demon through the power of music — corny as that sounds. The video is silly and requires some imagination, and we had a lot of fun making it,” Blackman shares.
