Following the release of his new album New Gods, Withered Hand‘s Dan Willson sat down with Kevin Scott of Echoes and Dust to talk about the new album. Dan says, “I feel every song I have written has represented the physical world I inhabited at the time as well as my own inner world. I try to ground the songs in my actual lived experience. I suppose it is inevitable that, having suddenly become a travelling musician now for five or so years, some of the insights that peculiar life affords will seep into some songs. It’s not an album about trashing hotel rooms.” Check out the full interview here. Withered Hand received play from CHMR, KEXP, KGLT, and Iowa Public Radio & got started at WUSM, WFMU, and WVIA – get behind New Gods this week.
