Cowboys aren’t just potent symbols of romanticized colonialism and warm, smooth nicotine. They’re also real people, living real lives. And yeah, sometimes they involve hats, horses and hoops of rope. But there’s God, too. And babies, and love. That’s what makes “Seasons (Waiting On You)” so special, other than it’s also the great new single from Baltimore’s Future Islands, whose new album Singles drops March 25th. Jay Buim directs the tender, striking portrait of a land forgotten by time and dissed by Borat.
Future Islands’ new album Singles (yup, brand new and not a collection) is out March 25th via 4AD; pre-order here.
