    Cass McCombs is set to return on February 8th with a new album called Tip of the SphereThe follow-up to 2016’s Mangy Love was first previewed with the track “Sleeping Volcanoes”, and now the psychedelic folk artist is back with another advanced single, “Estrella”.

    A tribute to the late Latino singer Juan Gabriel, “Estrella” (which is Spanish for “star”) is a dreamy and pensive memorial. McCombs’ unforced vocals seem almost eulogistic, filled with reverence instead of sorrow. “I was roused and aroused/ Only you can rouse me in that way,” he sings. “Like music, language was blown out/ Like pulling down the sea/ Like plunging into the stars.” Take a listen below.
