Christopher Owens had an absolutely flawless run as the frontman of the San Francisco band Girls, but he dissolved his band in 2012. And last year, he released the intriguing but spotty solo debut Lysandre. Today, Owens wrote that he’s already made another album with “some friends,” and it would be nice if those friends were the other members of Girls, but that’s probably too much to hope for. Still, “It Comes Back To You,” the new song that Owens has just shared, is the same sort of heart-wrecking songcraft that Owens brought to Girls — especially to Girls’ second LP, 2011’s amazing and gospel-inflected Father, Son, Holy Ghost. It’s a truly great song, and you can hear it below.
No word yet on what’s up with this new album, but I’m suddenly very excited.
