Song of the Day, June 14: Each Star We See by Kathryn Williams

Today’s song is Each Star We See by Kathryn Williams. Another “recommended by” find, Williams is an astounding composer and performer. Her quiety, breathy vocals and stripped down production make it easy to hear her work as light, but her lyrics have real depth and power. The whole of her magnificent album Little Black Numbers addresses the darker aspects of the human condition. This track has the singer looking at the beautiful night sky and observing:

Each star we see in the sky is a sun like our own, beginning to die.

Enjoy the quiet power and dark thoughts of Each Star We See today.
