Published Oct 06, 2020After appearing on Kelly Lee Owens' Inner Song earlier this year, John Cale has returned with a song of his own.
"Lazy Day" arrives alongside an Abby Portner-directed video, which cuts together footage of the natural world with that of a pink-haired Cale lounging about.
"I was so ready to finally get my new album out; fits and starts and then damn 2020 happened! A lot to say in these times," Cale wrote in a statement. "Context is everything and 140 characters isn't going to cut it! As a songwriter my truth is all tied-up in and through those songs that must wait a while longer. And then it occurred to me that I do have something for the moment, a song I'd recently completed… With the world careening out of its orbit I wanted to stop the lurch and enjoy a period where we can take our time and breathe our way back into a calmer world."
"Lazy Day" follows Cale's 2016 album M:FANS, a reimagining of his solo LP Music for a New Society.
