Sydney singer-songwriter Holly Throsby already recorded one duet with a grizzled icon of the American folk-rock underground, her 2009 Will Oldham collaboration “Would You?” Throsby’s new “What Do You Say?” is touted as a companion of sorts, and indeed it features a similar shadowy tone and tender, understated vocal interplay, this time with Sun Kil Moon leader Mark Kozelek. It’s a beautiful ballad about romantic reconciliation, and it just might ease whatever ominous vibes you’re feeling at the moment. Listen below.
“What Do You Say?” is out 11/14 via Spunk Records. Throsby’s next album After A Time, her first since 2011’s Team, will follow early next year. Throsby also just published her debut novel, Goodwood.
