Just ahead of Indie88’s first birthday, headliner Dan Mangan + Blacksmith premiered his brand new song “Vessel” on The Morning After at 8:10 this morning. Lucky for sleepyheads that didn’t wake up in time, the new track is waiting to be enjoyed below. Dan Mangan told us earlier this year that the upcoming record would be very different from what we’ve heard previously, and he wasn’t lying. The piano-riddled cut builds into a big chorus that gets a little vocal help from Dave Grohl.
Just before the world premiere of the new track The Morning After had a chance to chat with him about what we can expect on the new album and what he’s been up to of late.
Take a listen to “Vessel” and the interview below:
