Cast Off, the second single from Bruce Hornsby’s new record Absolute Zero, has been released today ahead of the full album’s release on April 12.
YouTube is currently featuring a lyric video, and the single is now available for purchase:
Cast Off was co-written by Bruce Hornsby and Justin Vernon, and features vocals from both Vernon and Sean “S.” Carey.
Bruce says of the song, “This song was put together in Eau Claire, WI last April, starting with an unused film cue, developed and expanded upon in the studio with spontaneous contributions from Sean Carey (who just walked in and started singing), Jeremy Ylvisaker (playing guitar that doesn’t sound like guitar!), Mike Lewis and JT Bates on sax and drums, Brad Cook (and later Noisemaker JV Collier) on bass, and Justin and I taking turns in the vocal booth trading ideas and melodies. Pretty much, mostly concocted right there at April Base! (Justin Vernon’s recording facility)”.
