Four years ago we introduced London-based singer-songwriter Will Westerman and his debut EP Hravard. Now he announced the signing with Play It Again Sam and the release of the first full-length Your Hero Is Not Dead which will be out on June 5th. It was recorded alongside his close friend and producer Nathan Jenkins (A.K.A. Bullion) at first in Southern Portugal before finishing the process in London. We already shared “Think I’ll Stay” and “Waiting On Design”; “Huxley” is a new excerpt. Listen below.
Westerman shares about writing the track, “This was the last song I wrote for the whole record, but I had the title for the album before any of the music was formed. I remember I wrote it on the day that Mark Hollis died. He’s probably as close to a musical hero as I have. The song isn’t about him or Talk Talk necessarily, but when he died I wanted to put myself to task and respond to the sadness I was feeling at that moment.”
