Listen Westerman shares new single ‘Idol; RE-run’
He’s also announced his first North American tour in four years.
Returning with his first new song in two years, Westerman has shared his new single ‘Idol; RE-run’.
“The lyrics to the song were written around the same time as the storming of the Capitol,” he notes. “The compulsion towards the pedestal is strong. The need to scapegoat and revere without logic. Our populists actively celebrate there being people who don’t know anything other or better than anyone else, yet these spectres with their failings conduct our anger and resentment as if they were gods. They are nothing more than the shadow of something else, the face fronting a need to be loved or revered present in everyone. And there will always be another face to front.”
