Dream-folk outfit Twain have shared “Young God (gotta lotta feeling),” the first single off their newly announced forthcoming double EP 2 E.P.s, out Jan. 25 through Keeled Scales.
“Young God” is a jaunty, golden-hued tune that feels tailor-made for some sort of wintertime homecoming montage, due in no small part to the plinking pianos that double singer-songwriter Mt. Davidson’s vocals, coloring everything with the icy twinge of melancholy that the season brings. “This song is about the freedom-feeling of allowing Love its natural Death,” Davidson said in a statement, and that mix between freedom and free-fall feels about right.
The double EP that includes “Young God” will collect two distinct moments in the artist’s recording history: Side A is New Miami Sound, which collects unreleased material from the Rare Feeling album sessions; Side B is Alternator, an intimate recording of Davidson performing a selection of his songs in a van. The album art features a painting made by Twain drummer Peter Pezzimenti. The art, along with a full tracklist, can be found further down.
Listen to “Young God (gotta lotta feeling)” below, along with the band’s 2017 Paste Studio session, and find their full list of tour dates further down.
