Jason Collett – Dark Times [Listen]

Today Toronto based musician Jason Collett dropped a new track called Dark Times.
The leading single is taken from the upcoming seventh album Head Full Of Wonder via Arts & Crafts.
An intimate folk rock tune.

About the track:
Collett takes inspiration from a famed Bertolt Brecht epigram on the first single:
‘In the dark times / will there also be singing? Yes, there will be singing / about the dark times.’ With the antidote to the din of the days, Collett layers breezy, jangly melodies over his own patent prose, answering yes ‘you can really get that feel in dark times.’ The first salvo from Head Full Of Wonder is folk music distinctly of the moment, lifted up by the spirit of music itself.

“I read those lines from Brecht’s 1938 poem and immediately heard a melody, and the song came together without effort,” Collett recalls. “The recording was similar, it came together pretty naturally in a live take.”
