New Release: Laura Veirs – I Was A Fool

Today, Laura Veirs, newly separated, releases “I Was A Fool”, the first thing she’s ever recorded herself as it flowed out of her stream-of-consciousness style on the first go with no edits.

Listen below…

Of the track Veirs says: “My marriage was falling apart. I was strumming my guitar and I felt a song coming on. Normally song-writing for me involves editing and fussing before the song feels ‘right’, but not this time. I grabbed my phone and recorded this song as it wrote itself — it came out this way, completely formed and realized. It’s a rare thing for this to happen to me. Rather than sitting on this song and waiting for a new album I simply had to release it, as soon as possible. I offer this up on Valentine’s Day as a balm for the broken-hearted.”
