Alison Mosshart shares her second solo song ‘It Ain’t Water’, and reveals details of a forthcoming 7-inch release via Domino. Available to preorder now for July 31st. Mosshart is to release two vinyls featuring ‘It Ain’t Water’ and previously-released digital single, ‘Rise’.
The track simmers and bubbles with her trademark voice ever on the edge of cracking. A voice with such an ability to transfer emotion, works so well with just an acoustic guitar and slide guitar for accompaniment. a simple snare drum joins in creating a great atmospheric track for late night listening.
Check it out, here.
Written late last year, ‘It Ain’t Water’ was recorded with Alain Johannes (Queens of the Stone Age, PJ Harvey). Mosshart had been sitting on the track for quite some time, and every time the singer found herself battling a bout of writer’s block, she’d pick up her guitar and sing it.
Alison on working with Alain Johannes: “Working with Alain on ‘It Ain’t Water’ was a blast. He’s such a talent and such a kind person. His mind is wide open. He understands and sees the beauty in imperfection, magic moments, accidents – the soulful human stuff, and the spirited super-human hard to explain stuff that makes a song great. Working with him was an honor, and also, hot damn he can play any instrument like a champ… like he invented the instrument himself. Alain Johannes IS music.”
Pre-order the ‘Rise’ / ‘It Ain’t Water’ 7”, available July 31st, via the Domino Mart HERE. The 7” will be housed in a spined sleeve with a four page insert.
