premiere: Anna St. Louis – Desert
Anna St. Louis shares another stunning new track from her proper debut full-length If Only There Was a River, coming next month. The windswept, vividly cinematic “Desert” evokes wide open spaces and intense longing, and the song’s heartbreakingly lonely sentiment — “and the fire went out long ago, but still i pretend that you’re coming home” — would resonate just as devastatingly if it were soundtracking a slow-burning scene in a picturesque western flick or emanating from a jukebox through the smoke across a seedy dive bar. Listen below. The Kevin Morby + King Tuff-produced If Only There Was a River is out October 12th on Woodsist / Mare.
