BEN NOBLE TO RELEASE NEW SINGLE "BENEATH YOUR WINGS" ON NOVEMBER 22, 2019

Written in the midst of an unrelenting winter, "Beneath Your Wings" is steeped in imagery featuring winter winds and a place of longing for spring to come. Noble's own inner-winter was brought about as he began seeing a professional counselor to face demons that had plagued him his whole life. "Beneath Your Wings" came to be as Noble processed two significant moments in succession: the loss of a pregnancy followed immediately by a new pregnancy resulting in a healthy baby boy. How does one celebrate a new life while mourning one lost? Inspired by Melvin Dixon's Heartbeats, "Beneath Your Wings" plays with simple word pairings; a stutter-stop way of relaying a narrative that journeys from grieving to acceptance.

 

This journey is reflected musically by beginning simply and delicately, with light piano and tender, ethereal vocals. A feeling of renewal is ushered in halfway through as the out-of-time piano part yields to a building drum groove into an eventual burst of sound. It is the third single from his forthcoming record. The LP is on track to debut in February 2020. 

 

Lyrics: 

Knee-drop, please stop, wait

Flutter, quiver, heartbeat swept away

Ping-pong, ping-pong, pain

Brute earth, fluke birth truer, truer weighs

I cry

 

Bluebird, new dirt, wait

Bitter, withered heartbeat somewhere faint

Ping-pong, ping-pong, pain

Bloom first, bluebird, broken by the blade

You cry

 

Keep me somewhere safe

Worry, wander, truer, truer weighs

 

Breath, my heart's forever beat outside my chest

I see you in the heather there

Death, forever weaved, what hasn't happened yet

I see you there

I see you

Keep me in the shade beneath
