This is the first single off of Stolen Jars' upcoming sophomore album Kept.
“I started writing Folded Out in the middle of the night. Molly and I had stayed up making Joseph Cornell-esque boxes. As the night went on, the boxes got better, the music got better. The song came out of that moment.
I wrote the music first, short riffs and bits that came to me in 45-second increments over the next few months. Even before adding vocals, I had to record over a hundred tracks before I felt like the song was whole.
This was one of the first songs I wrote for the album, it was the first song that pushed me towards this new sound, and so, it only makes sense that I should get to share this song first.
I’m so excited that people finally get to take a listen.
My friend John-Elio Reitman sang with me and my friends Elena Juliano, Steven Whiteley and Will Radin played flute, trumpet and some nice drums on the track.”
out of page
hands callow unclean
the sound of still refrain
just clips in between
a box lit warm
on the twenty fourth
you gave me
our old nights––
we cut paper walls
and now i
am folding them all
i will not go
i will not go
let’s be young again
keep your hands close
released 21 July 2014
