KEVIN MORBY – ” Dumcane “

Posted: May 10, 2021 in MUSIC

Kevin Morby has released ‘Dumcane’, an outtake from his 2016 album ‘Singing Saw’ to mark its fifth anniversary.

In a post, Morby said he took ‘Dumcane’ to the recording sessions for ‘Singing Saw’, but it didn’t make the cut because it “wasn’t feeling quite right sitting next to the other songs”. The track was then taken to Kyle Thomas and reimagined as a stripped-down song.

“For reasons beyond me this version of ‘Dumcane’ sat inside Kyle’s tape machine lost and forgotten the last five years until Kyle stumbled upon it a few weeks ago while going through old tapes only days before Singing Saws fifth birthday,” Morby said.

“Singing Saw” got great reviews back in 2016, describing it as “a surreal world of death, love and murder populated by vultures, coyotes and one wandering man on the verge of losing his mind”.

“Using twilight walks into the mountains as inspiration and the shabby house he shares with his girlfriend, his guitars and an old piano as his base, Morby cooked up a glorious third album.”

“It felt like a sign from the universe that the song could finally take flight. I am so happy to share this document of Kyle and I making music in his Pine Room on some sunny afternoon in what seems like a lifetime ago.”

Released May 4th, 2021
