Torres – “Gracious Day”

At the end of January, Torres is releasing a new album, Silver Tongue, her first for Merge. She’s put out one song from it so far, “Good Scare,” and today she’s back with another one, “Gracious Day,” a song that Mackenzie Scott originally shared as a demo in 2018 when she was between label homes. It’s re-recorded but still pretty bare-bones, Scott offering up elementally simple sentiments of love (“Honey, I’m gonna love you all my life”) over an acoustic guitar. Listen below.
