John Craigie Shares ‘Vallecito’ Single & Bee Gees Cover
For “Vallecito,” Craigie drew inspiration from reading tales of 1900s survival. The singer-songwriter spoke about the origins of the song in a statement. Read it below:
A traveler had been caught in a really bad snowstorm and after being sure he would freeze to death came upon what looked like an abandoned cabin. When he opened the door he saw that it was already taken by another traveler. It was quickly discussed that the cabin held only enough food and space for one person to survive the long storm. He was sure he would have to fight for his life to be the one to stay, but the inhabitant, for some reason, gave the space to him and mysteriously walked out into the snow to his death. The story stuck with me and I often wondered why the other guy so easily gave up.
Vallecito also arrived with a B-side featuring a cover of The Bee Gees “To Love Somebody.” Listen to both tracks below:
