Parquet Courts’ frontman Andrew Savage is releasing his debut solo album, Thawing Dawn, under the name A. Savage on October 13 via Dull Tolls. He previously shared the album’s first single, “Winter in the South.” Now he has shared another song from the album, the crisp and sparse “Wild, Wild, Wild Horses.” Check it out below, followed by the song’s lyrics and Savage’s upcoming tour dates.

Thawing Dawn was recorded between December 2016 and June 2017 in Jarvis Taveniere’s Thump Studios in Brooklyn. The album also features members of Woods, Ultimate Painting, PC Worship, EZTV, Sunwatchers, and Psychic TV.

Parquet Courts released their excellent latest album, Human Performance, back last April via Rough Trade. Read our 2016 interview with Parquet Courts.

“Wild, Wild, Wild Horses” Lyrics:

Like a strandbeest mocking the slow motionless wild, wild, wild horses
I’m broken into gallop too
Like the feeling of a dream fell to by accident, stirred awake just as lazily
so now why not comb the cloud to get back through

Starving: what it feels like, mostly, feeding someone else your heart
From a distance, feeling like a fool and picking all those thoughts apart

Is it wrong that all I think about is you these days
Did they drag me off or did I gladly run fast and free into your grips
You can try on words like outfits but you can’t wear gloves
Picking up the shiny shards of all the plots falling from our clumsy lips

Alice, listen to me closely hear my words and feel something
I don’t see you as much as I need to and I need to know what that means

Motel benches longer than the trees that died for them
At opposing ends bow your head and I’ll fill your glass but not your ears

Promise always? That’s a long ways but the world is big but your eyes are too plus I’m a little drunk, and I know what I want. I didn’t always know, no, it’s taken years.

Darling, take your dress off slowly I’ve still got one eye open
In the morning, wake me up and hold me before you start shivering

Gatta, got to let you know this, take these words and know they’re true
Eu te amo, eu te amo tanto and I’m not quite sure what to do
