New Release: Hiss Golden Messenger – Standing In The Doorway

Hiss Golden Messenger’s Heart Like A Levee was one of the triumphs of 2016, and this week, M. C. Taylor has unveiled one of the tracks that didn’t quite make the cut

Standing In The Doorway is a fantastic outtake from the recording sessions and can be heard below…

Talking about the track, Taylor states…“Standing In The Doorway was written and recorded during the making of Heart Like A Levee. I think I was trying to understand if and whether luck was related to my life at the time. I always liked this tune, but it didn’t seem to fit the emotional arc of that album for some reason. It also seemed like it could survive on its own, away from other songs that might give it context. Since Heart Like a Levee came out, a lot has changed in the world, of course. I’m currently writing this from the studio where we’re working on our next record and trying to live in this world with some kind of light”
