While You’re Here

October 23, 2012

While You’re Here is a preview off Dirty Projectors’ upcoming new EP About to Die. It’s a string heavy, simple, yet lush, two minute piece. It’s somber and beautiful. What’s really special about the tune is the song was written the day of Gerard Smith’s wake. The late TV on the Radio member succumbed to cancer last year, if you might remember. It was a sad affair, and happened right before they toured for stand out, excellent 2011 album Nine Types of Light. One of the first shows they did upon ending their brief hiatus was the very one I attended in San Francisco. This is a well deserved, moving tribute. RIP Gerard. Love you, TV on the Radio.
