Pokey LaFarge released a new single, “Drink Of You.” The tune is set to appear on the singer-songwriter’s upcoming album, In The Blossom of Their Shade, which has been postponed from its scheduled release date of September 10 to October 15 due to manufacturing delays.
LaFarge announced In The Blossom Of Their Shade — the follow-up to his critically acclaimed 2020 LP Rock Bottom Rhapsody — in June and shared the video for “Get It ‘Fore It’s Gone.” The singer-songwriter followed with the single “Rotterdam” in July.
LaFarge detailed the new track “Drink Of You” in a statement:
Still in the sway of my Rock Bottom Rhapsody, I suppose, in both mind and spirit, having just recorded the album back in early 2019, here’s another self-indulgent heartbreak song. Deep in the bottle and the only way I wanted to get out was by drinking my way out and singing about it. I don’t drink anymore but it’s still an enjoyable song to sing because of the ¾ time. It sounds like a jazz club / barroom sea chanty.
