American singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Peter Broderick is back with a new album called Blackberry which is out now digitally via Erased Tapes and arriving physically tomorrow. According to the press release, The subject matter of Blackberry is wide-ranging. He touches on family and on the connection we all need as social animals.
He writes about technology and whether it will save or doom us. And of course, he writes about nature, about foraging, about the importance of engaging with the outside world in cities and in the country. Peter and his family recently returned to Co. Galway as they have a great love for the Irish countryside, having lived there before their move to London in 2019.
He shared a new video for the track “Ode to Blackberry”. It was directed by Canadian artist Chad VanGaalen who explains: “Peter presented me with this song in the spring. I thought about how lucky I was to respond visually to such a peaceful message. Out west the blackberry symbolizes a freedom and that freedom exists within this song.”
