We met up with Villagers' Conor O'Brien last week on the Brooklyn Heights Promenade to film what would feel, retrospectively, like a serenade along the banks of the East River. Romance! Skylines! Moving on. O'Brien told us that his goal on tour at the moment is to play "Becoming a Jackal" in every city he visits or just about anywhere he steps foot. The latter seems like a stretch, but it was still fitting that of the two songs he shared with us that afternoon, "Becoming a Jackal" sounded as fresh as it did. Check that out above and new single "Ship Of Promises" right after the jump.
