BITBY is honored to present the debut video from Heyward Howkins, for “Sugar Sand Stitched Lip,” the first single of his new album “The Hale and the Hearty” to be released everywhere June 26th.
The Hale & Hearty features songs grounded in local surroundings but also effortlessly ventures into more fanciful territory. “Young Bowerbird / He made an offer / Stacked high for a lady that’s wandering by,” Heyward sings in Plume and Orange, a mournful but ultimately hopeful tale of the last two birds on Earth. “She’s through with talking / They’re the last two with a body still walking.” Even when faced with the apocalypse, the pair still find time to bicker about daily life.
Enjoy the video for the debut single Sugar Sand Stitched Lip and look for Heyward’s record coming soon.
