Earlier this year, Grizzly Bear announced they were releasing their new album Painted Ruins via Columbia on August 18. The band previously released the tracks “Mourning Sound” and “Three Rings,” and today they have another one to share, titled “Four Cypresses.” Pitchfork points out that singer and songwriter Daniel Rossen said the song was from the “perspective of a homeless person sleeping in the driveway of a place he was staying in L.A., but broadened to encompass his thoughts about the refugee experience and life during wartime.” Listen to the Grizzly Bear “Four Cypresses” stream below via Spotify.
