The earthy, emotional tune is the perfect chill-out song for your upcoming weekend, and we’ve got the exclusive premiere. Check it out below.

  1. Excellent, just as I knew it would be. SXSW peeps going to see Diane in concert are in for an amazing aural treat. Can’t wait for the album.

    Quel plaisir de retrouver Diane Birch avec cette superbe chanson, je guette son nouvelle album avec grand interêt. Peu d’artiste me font cette effet : autant d’impatience, passionner par la moindre info sur elle. Je crois que j’en suis fan et que je suis pas prêt de m’arrêter à apprécier cette artiste talentueuse, encore trop peu méconnue à mon gout, mais cela devrait changer… j’en suis à ma quatrième écoute, je m’en lasse pas, la grande classe Diane.
