We’re now on to track seven of Bill Callahan‘s forthcoming Gold Record and this week it’s a track called “Breakfast”.
Many of the songs from Gold Record up to this point have told tales of working men, but “Breakfast” is all about domestic life. Over lightly frisky folk-rock backing, Callahan describes the way they slot together and make their relationship work. Perhaps the most telling line, and the most classic Callahan, is “I drink so that we don’t fight / She don’t drink so that we don’t fight.” That’s just one of a host of great ones in “Breakfast” – take a listen below.
Bill Callahan will be releasing a new song from his upcoming album Gold Record every Monday until its release on September 4. You can follow him on Twitter and Bandcamp.
