Buck Meek (of Big Thief fame) has today dropped new single 'Second Sight', along with news of his second solo album Two Saviors

The record, which follows his 2018 self-debut, is set for release on 15th January 2021 on Texas-based label Keeled Scales, and interestingly does not feature single 'Roll Back Your Clocks', which we reviewed back in July. It was produced with long-time collaborator Andrew Sarlo over a week in New Orleans on an 8-track tape recorder, with reportedly none of the musicians allowed to listen back to the tracks until the end of each day. 

"The value in our world is built by the labour of love - a currency that accrues no debt, enriching both the giver and receiver,โ€ says Buck on the influence behind the album. โ€œThis wealth provides the vitality needed to lift a hammer, to raise a roof, and to lay upon the eaves in silent awe of nature and civilization and the culmination of universal effort. Magic (the left hand of love?) arises from attention, and is accessible to all without prejudice. A creation from nothing, from some uncaused cause, some eternal unmoved mover."
