In 2020, Bartees Strange shared his album Live Forvever, a euphoric collision of style and genre that made it to No. 13 on our year-end albums list. To celebrate one year since the project's release, Strange will release a deluxe version on October 1, and today, you can hear a brand new song from the project called "Weights."
A celebration of the mid-00s indie rock that Strange loves, "Weights" opens with an orchestral, rip-roaring pace and never relents, kind of like the emotions that come with the unrequited love that Strange says the song is about. From a press release: “This is about the ones that got away. Going back and forth in my head about relationships that could have happened, missing that it didn’t, and finally realizing I gotta let the weight of it all go.”
