Lifted from his upcoming new album ‘My Boy’.

Ahead of the release of his new album ‘My Boy’ on 9th September on Dead Oceans, Marlon Williams is sharing new single ‘Easy Does It’.

“I’ve always loved Lee Hazlewood’s personification of ‘Easy’ in his song ‘Easy and Me’; what a great way of cutting to the point,” Marlon says. “It worked for the Greeks, it works for Māori too. I wanted everything about this song to be as gentle as possible. From Delaney Davidson’s lap steel intro with its Pacifica 6th chords to the whispered vocal delivery to the soft summer visualiser which is something of an addendum to the ‘My Boy’ video: the boys, sweaty from the days digging and dancing, launching into the shallows of lyttelton harbor, hoping to lure some poor sailors to a watery grave.”

Check it out below.
