Last Wednesday you should have received Philip Selway’s digital single, “By Some Miracle”. If you aren’t already famiiar, Philip Selway has been the drummer for Radiohead for 20+ years now.
However, with his debut album Familial, he’s stepping front and center as a singer/songwriter. The album, which features colaborations with singer/songwriter Lisa Germano, former Soul Coughing bassist Sebastian Steinberg, Wilco drummer Glenn Kotche and multi-instrumentalist Patrick Sansone, is due out August 31st on Nonesuch Records.
Here is what SPIN.com had to say about the single:
“By Some Miracle” sounds nothing like any of Radiohead’s material: it’s a bedroom folk song with acoustic guitar, warm backing vocals, a spare string section, and Selway’s soft whispers about “giving into temptation” and then “crawling back again” to win a lover’s trust.”
The single will be going for adds this week
