Del Water Gap – the solo project of Samuel Holden Jaffe – has enlisted Holly Humberstone for the new single ‘Cigarettes & Wine’. Check it out below.
“‘Cigarettes & Wine’ is an ode to a transatlantic long distance relationship,” Jaffe explained in a statemenet. “It’s about finally getting to catch a moment with the person you’ve been missing the most, and the threads that keep you connected when you’re once again forced to say goodbye.”
Humberstone added: “Working on ‘Cigarettes & Wine’ with one of my favourite artists has been so much fun. I first met Holden about three years ago at the very start of my career when we played a show together at The Roxy in Los Angeles. It was my first time in the states and I’d been a huge fan of Holden’s music and so I was pretty star struck! As the years have gone on I’ve been lucky enough to spend a lot more time in the states, but have definitely felt the pressures that long distance can put on relationships and I think that’s something that a lot of touring artists can really relate to. It’s a song that is so meaningful to me and being able to create it with one of my favourite writers has really been a dream and I hope people love it as much as we do.”
Del Water Gap’s second album, I Miss You Already + I Haven’t Left Yet, came out last year on Mom+Pop. Holly Humberstone released her debut LP, Paint My Bedroom Black, in October.
