Valley Maker – Seattle songwriter Austin Crane – released his Frenchkiss Records debut Rhododendron last year, which quickly won acclaim for its lush folk sound and introspective lyricism.
Crane has since been taking Rhododendron on the road across North America and Europe in support of the album, and today he shares a Rhododendron bonus track ahead of his next leg of tour.
The soulful “Supernatural” was started in Cardiff, Wales, with Ali Lacey of Novo Amor providing backup vocals and production work, and finished in Seattle with producer Trevor Spencer. The track comes today via a video directed by Joseph Kolean and and Zach Gutierrez.
Valley Maker’s current North American tour includes dates with Tomberlin and Seattle’s Capitol Hill Block Party in July.
