Ahead of the release of his debut album ‘Your Hero Is Not Dead’ on 5th June, Westerman has shared his latest single ‘Waiting On Design’.
A dreamy newbie, Westerman explains of its origins: “I was thinking about the absurdity of the self, and how nobody wants to look at themselves from the perspective of the people they hurt. What’s interesting to me about storytelling isn’t necessarily the stories themselves, but the mutual connection that comes from people’s understanding of what’s being conjured by that story.”
Have a listen to ‘Waiting On Design’ and see the full debut album track list below.
