Twain Premieres “The Sorcerer”

Twain has released the third single from his forthcoming full-length album, Rare Feeling, dueFriday, October 20 on Keeled Scales. Consequence of Sound premiered the track, describing, “Slow drums and leisurely, almost lethargic guitar plucks create a meditative blanket on top of which Twain lays down his rumination on love and death in an ego-centric society.” Songwriter Mt. Davidson provided the blog extensive insight into the exceptionally emotive song, thoughtfully exploring the influences of “Five Martyrs of Ego-Centric Society” upon his artistic perspective. Read the full feature.

Recently, Twain won Manhattan’s heart at a sold-out Bowery Ballroom show with Langhorne Slim. He’ll return to the city for an album release show at Union Pool on October 24, followed by select dates with Buck Meek of Big Thief and a full run with Americana favorites, The Deslondes. All shows are listed below.


Davidson said of the “The Sorcerer”: “I really enjoy hearing the varied reactions this song provokes. It was written from an intuitive place and so I am hesitant to try and explain what it means to me, as I think to do so would prevent the listener from having a real personal reaction to it… Just about the greatest thing about writing something is to have someone understand it better than you do yourself. All that aside, I can say that the title is critical in fully understanding the song, and that knowing the natural difference between magic and sorcery is critical in fully understanding the title.”

Support from artists, fans and press alike has flowed in, following Twain’s album announcement.Rare Feeling’s opening track, “Solar Pilgrim,” earned over 100,000 streams in its first month and situated Twain as the #1 Most Posted Artist on Hype Machine.
