John Vanderslice – “Spectral Dawn”

In a few weeks, John Vanderslice is releasing his first new album in six years, The Cedars. We’ve heard a couple of tracks from it already, “I’ll Wait For You” and “Will Call,” and today he’s sharing another song, “Spectral Dawn.”

In a press statement, Vanderslice says the song is “a hymn to those who have disappeared into the ether: the lost loves, the obsessions, the dead. They’ve slipped through a trap door and are not accessible anymore. The remaining fragments of experience and memory are comforting and damaging at the same time.”
