Micah P. Hinson “Oh, Spaceman” – Listen

Micah P. Hinson has shared a new track ‘Oh, Spaceman’ from his forthcoming album ‘Presents The Holy Strangers’ which comes out on 8th September. “It was the first song I wrote for my boy, Wiley Tex, after he was born, and the only song I played for about half a year after his birth. It is the only song where the melody and words came before sitting behind a guitar. Which is not a way I’ve ever written.” The album itself is described as a “modern folk opera, telling the story of a war time family, going from birth to love, to marriage and children, to war and betrayal, murder to suicide – spanning all of the strange and glorious places life can lead. We follow their story, we see their decisions, we see their faults and their beauty. We live with them, we die with them.” Oh, and Steps are touring in December.
