New A. Savage single ‘Black Holes, The Stars and You’ is out now – the A-side to limited tour exclusive 7″

A Savage’s “sharp writing and voice are distinctive enough that you could recognize them from outer space” – Stereogum

Recorded in the same session as recent solo album Several Songs About Fire, “Black Holes, Stars and You” has been a long-time coming from visual artist and Parquet Courts co-frontman, A. Savage. Featuring infectious, Latin-inspired grooves and production by John Parish, the single is about the different ways people see each other versus the different ways people view themselves. A. Savage has a knack for lyrical poetry, which is on full display here. Listen now. The single heralds forthcoming UK / EU & US dates this spring, including a special Valentine’s Day show at London’s The Garage, where tickets are on offer on a 2-4-1 deal exclusively through Rough Trade West Record Shop direct if you email: [email protected] when you buy a copy of the limited edition, numbered and signed 7” single – buy link here .

Of “Black Holes, the Stars and You,” Savage says: “Black Holes, the Stars and You was recorded in the same session as Several Songs about Fire, but didn’t make the record because albums can only be so long. It was a tough decision to make, but ultimately I felt it was good enough to get its own release. I love the groove that John Parish and Dylan Hadley lay down here, using various latin percussion instruments. It’s a song that I’d been working on for a few years, that had way too many parts and lyrics, which John really helped me sculpt down into what it is now, bless him.” The song is about the different ways people see each other, and how the smaller we feel the bigger others seem. Sometimes you find yourself orbiting someone who has no idea of their own magnitude. Sometimes you feel like they are examining you in a Petri dish, their gaze a magnified eye in the sky.
