In less than a month, Ought frontman Tim Darcy will release Saturday Night, his debut solo album. Back in November, he shared the first stunning single from the album, “Tall Glass Of Water,” containing all the tension and glorious noise from his other project, but showed a more personal side, with an aura of honesty and earnestness embedded in its thick, Americana-inspired guitar tones. This week, he shared the saccharine sweet ballad “Still Waking Up,” perhaps the most romantic song Darcy has ever released. The instrumentals are still thick and chunky, but Darcy’s voice, unquestionably the most important instrument he owns, is instead soft and elastic, pure and unpretentious.
Saturday Night will be released February 17th.
