Julie Byrne is a wanderer. She told us as much last year in the lead-up to her phenomenal album Not Even Happiness. Now the phenomenally soothing balladeer is back today with her first new music since the LP, judging by the title I’d guess it’s inspired by more of her travels.
“Spain,” from the new Stadiums & Shrines compilation Dreams, is an ambient instrumental that forgoes conventional song structure. I’d say it doesn’t sound like your average Julie Byrne track except it sounds quite a bit like the glowing aura in the background of a Julie Byrne track brought into the foreground. Byrne recorded it with her producer and bandmate Eric Littmann, and it premiered today at Gold Flake Paint. Go ahead and lose yourself in it below.
