Delta Spirit Spend Some Quality Time With Family in “Home Again” Video
The new single arrives ahead of their fifth album What Is There, out September 11.
New music from Delta Spirit is a rare occurrence these days, with the folksy rockers only releasing four albums over the course of their sixteen years together, and remaining relatively quiet since dropping Into the Wide in 2014. With vocalist Matthew Logan Vasquez keeping busy with his solo project, the band officially returned in June with the single “How Bout It,” which will be featured on their fifth LP What Is There, due out in September.
Today they’re following that song up with another What Is There cut—“Home Again” (a sequel to 2012’s “Home”?) is a heartwarming and polished take on their unique brand of Americana, even going so far as to cite John Prine in the lyrics. “There is a reference to ‘Angel from Montgomery,’” Vasquez notes. “We were booked to support him at Luck Reunion at Willie Nelson‘s ranch during this year’s SXSW. It was bummer losing the opportunity to share a stage, and certainly we were all crushed to hear about his passing. Topically, the song is about being gone for a living. If we wanted to continue down the Prine analogy, you could say it was the cat from the Cowboy’s perspective as opposed to the Angel’s.”
The video manages to illustrate the upbeat energy of the song, stringing together images of the band enjoying time with their respective families. Vasquez goes on to share that the track was written while his family was living in Norway, before moving back home to Austin.
