ANAIS MITCHELL – ” On Your Way (Felix Song) “

Posted: January 13, 2022 in MUSIC

Anaïs Mitchell, the “Hadestown creator, Bonny Light Horseman member, and frequent Bon Iver/Aaron Dessner collaborator, is releasing her first solo album in over a decade at the end of the month. The self-titled LP was produced by her Bonny Light Horseman bandmate Josh Kaufman and also features Dessner, Michael Lewis, JT Bates, and Thomas Bartlett, with string and flute arrangements provided by Nico Muhly.

We’ve already heard the lovely singles “Bright Star” and the brilliant “Brooklyn Bridge,” and today, she’s sharing another song, which is an ode to a lost friend.

“I wrote ‘On Your Way (Felix Song)’ for my friend Felix McTeigue, who died unexpectedly in 2020,” Mitchell explains. “We briefly had the same manager in our early ‘hustling days’ of trying to get a songwriter career going. I can picture us playing at the old Living Room on the lower east side, and me being one of five people in Felix’s audience, and vice versa. Felix was really fearless and present, he always had a guitar on his back, he was always writing something, he loved the act of just rushing headlong into writing, recording, not overthinking it. It’s a lesson I’ll return to for the rest of my life.”

Anaïs Mitchell self titled album is out 1/28 via BMG Records.
