Elvis Perkins is thrilled to share a new song titled “Anonymous,” out today via MIR/Petaluma Records.
“‘Anonymous’ has followed me around for some time now, sort of shadow-like, it seems we know each other quite well and hardly at all. I couldn’t say where all of its melodies came from. Out of some blue, from somewhere and/or ‘someone’ else. I feel this way a bit about Steven Sebring, who I hardly knew when I suddenly knew he was the sole soul to capture the phantasm and sprawl of the song. He is something of a white warlock (in black) it seems to me, with imagery at times liquid, solid and vapor all at once, perfect to approach and approximate form for the subject at hand. We opted out of treatments, plans and the like and just sort of walked unknowingly up to the void and said ‘hello, who and how and what are you?’ It of course only echoed the same in reply.”
Perkins has released three full-length collection of songs: two under his name, Elvis Perkins, (2007’s Ash Wednesday via XL Recordings and 2015’s I Aubade via MIR), and one under the band name, Elvis Perkins (2009’s Dearland via XL Recordings).
