Palace Winter's New Single, Featuring Grandaddy's Jason Lytle
"A story about a bad trip at a weird house party I went to with my sister."
“Think Kraftwerk playing a classic country song” says Carl Coleman about "The Deeper End". Apparently this is the sound of throttled anxiety, skeletons in the closet, and psychedelic reckoning with cognitive dissonance for Palace Winter's lead singer.
Their new single, out today, takes us on a trip through Coleman's spinning thoughts, with Caspar Hesselager's synthesizers transforming the classic country form into a genre-bending sonic journey.
Contributing a verse of his acclaimed vocals is Grandaddy’s Jason Lytle, perhaps playing the voice of reason to Coleman’s stark mycelial realizations. “There’s nothing more than this, I hate to let you know” he sings, continuing with more harsh truths and trippy pieces of advice. “Another you is waiting at the deeper end.”
The duo discovered that the iconic lead singer of Grandaddy was a fan of their music after he added a Palace Winter song to a playlist. A long-time fan of Jason, Coleman reached out with an unlikely proposition, to which Jason immediately said yes.
“It’s wild to think that back in the early naughties I was wandering around Europe with Grandaddy in my headphones, and now here I am trading lines with Jason. It’s a real honour and a proud moment for our band”
"The Deeper End (feat. Jason Lytle)" is the third single from Palace Winter's upcoming album ...Keep Dreaming, Buddy, out October 23. You can pre-order/pre-save the album here
