William Tyler & Marisa Anderson Share New Single ‘Hurricane Light’
William Tyler and Marisa Anderson shared a new single, “Hurricane Light.” The track is set to appear on the duo’s forthcoming collaborative album, Lost Futures, arriving on August 27 via Thrill Jockey.
Tyler and Anderson announced Lost Futures in March and shared the title track. The guitarists and singer-songwriters now follow with “Hurricane Light.”
Tyler detailed the new track in a statement. Read his words below:
On the day we recorded this, the sky in Portland had this very charged and haunted light to it – the weighted calm before the wind storms and then the wildfires moved in. I think we discussed this song being properly played by two old folks on a pier somewhere over a couple empty bottles of wine. Marisa’s telecaster has so much internal sustain that I think I barely had to even play – the guitar sort of just rang out on its own, I ended up actually playing probably half of the notes I imagined.
This song began as a recording I had been messing around with, a solo I had played over a rhythm track. The rhythm track wasn’t worth keeping, but the solo was good, so I challenged myself to finish it by turning it into a song of its own. This is one of the rare occasions where I actually wrote a melody down on staff paper. Then William came and added his Telecaster in the low register to complete it.
