Detroit’s Stef Chura has announced details of her second album
‘Midnight’ - the singer’s first record for new home Saddle Creek - will come out on 7th June, and is being previewed by first single ‘Method Man’.
“A long time ago I was pondering the literal words “Method Man” while listening to Wu-Tang,” Stef says of the new single.
“There was a person in my life that I had a confusing array of emotions for, sometimes I was in love with him, I admired and looked up to him, I thought of him as superior to me. He was older than me and I was a teenager. At that age I experienced a titanic amount of anxiety that usually expressed itself as silence.
“This song was born out of a total frustration regarding a man who seemed “methodical” to me. He was literate. He waxed poetic. Almost someone…how do I say this…that you wanted to be condescending to you? As long as they were talking to you. He drank a lot of energy drinks and had this overall outlook that no one understood him. That he was in on some kind of cosmic secret that I couldn’t get. He smoked so many cigs it stained his fingers yellow.”
