Laura Gibson Live at Hendershot's
Acclaimed singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Laura Gibson today announced her new album, Goners, will be released on October 26, 2018 via Barsuk Records. The FADER premiered first single “Tenderness” this morning, writing, “It begins with drums pounding like feet hitting the Earth, and melts into something gentler when Gibson's vocals and strings cut in, her voice honeyed and light.” Listen to “Tenderness” now HERE. Of “Tenderness,” Gibson says: “The songs I wrote for Goners all circle around the theme of grief, and the intimacy of shared loss. ‘Tenderness’ reflects on the ways we project pain, lash out, or become cracked open by the immediacy of another person. The act of holding each others' trauma and grief, is both miraculous and messy. When we're young, we adopt certain strategies for seeking and receiving tenderness. Much of adulthood is spent dismantling those strategies, and drawing new ones. I wanted to write about that dismantlement.” Goners is available for pre-order HERE.
