Del Water Gap has shared a new single, ‘Quilt of Steam’.

Following on from ‘Losing You’ and ‘All We Ever Do Is Talk’, it’s a collaboration with Arlo Parks, and the latest cut from his upcoming new album ‘I Miss You Already + I Haven’t Left Yet’, set for release on 29th September via Mom + Pop.

Del Water Gap explains: “Isa and I had toured together on her first album and became friends and discovered this mutual love for poetry and instrumental music…We had both been quite burned out when we first met and when we finally caught some time off and the color started returning to our faces we spent two days with Ethan Gruska. “Quilt of Steam” is what stuck. To me, this song is about coming off tour and feeling scrambled as hell and trying to find some balance and stillness in the midst of all that. It’s about waking up in your own bed for the first time in months and noticing the little details you hadn’t had the capacity to let in while everything was moving around you; lying in bed for a while and watching the steam rise off the radiator. Feeling the poetry come back to your mind. It’s about finding beauty in the mundane but it’s also about the treason of not acknowledging conflict, and trying to keep stoic even when you have no idea where you’re going.”
