Check out the dreamy voice of Kris Delmhorst and the lovely melody in this new single from upcoming album ‘Long Day in the Milky Way’. The album, due out on 14th August, is named after the opening line of this song, which is an uplifting, lyrical lesson in patience and taking time over important things in life. ‘Wind’s Gonna Find a Way’ was written, surrounded by birdsong, in Delmhorst’s garden in Massachusetts.
She says: “The fact that I kept unintentionally coming up with songs that said, in one way or another, ‘Hang in there’ – it revealed to me how much anxiety was lurking beneath the surface of daily life: climate change, political turmoil, the endless treadmill of outrage and heartbreak in the news. As these songs arrived, they brought words of encouragement I realized I myself needed to hear. Not in a shallow way, like ‘Everything’s fine.’ They felt like a friend’s voice saying, ‘Look, I get it, life gets incredibly dark. And you need to find a way to stay connected to the beautiful parts.'” This gently encouraging song of persistence is just what we need to start our week.
