The new track follows last year’s ‘House of Sugar’ album.

Uploading a brand new track to his own personal YouTube account, (Sandy) Alex G has shared new bop ‘rosebush’.

A mostly instrumental number, the soaring new song includes an accompanying video detailing a story about a woman named Joanna and the titular rosebush.

“In a dream, black flowers grew around her bed. She picked one and held it close to her face, twirling it by the stem. What a wonderful mess, she thought. How did these blossoms get here overnight?

Joanna woke. The sun through her bedroom window made it impossible to go back to sleep. She left the bedroom, walked down the stairs and through the hall to the kitchen.

What songs will you sing for me? She asked the birds from her kitchen window. The window above the kitchen sink overlooked her garden, out of which grew a great rosebush surrounded by spring flowers.

The birds go around the rosebush. Yes and they sing and fly to the trees at the edge of the property. Joanna listened to their songs and smiled as she filled her teapot with water.

Plunk plunk goes the piano.

Whose song is this? Joanna asked the piano. She sat on the bench and postponed her fingers over the keys.

Plunk plunk plunk plunk.

She left a window open in the night. Three gray cats crawled through the window into Joanna’s home. Being so busy at the piano, Joanna didn’t see or hear the cats prowling and purring in the room.

The three cats, moved by Joanna’s song, began to sing:

Crawl back to your hole, rat!”

It follows the release of his latest album ‘House of Sugar’ that landed in September last year.
