Damien Jurado – “Museum of Flight”

on February 8, 2012

Museum of Flight

Seattle-based singer-songwriter Damien Jurado is graciously giving away a free MP3 of  “Museum of Flight,” the second single off his forthcoming album Maraqopa. On this track, Jurado’s quavering falsetto is heartbreakingly beautiful, especially when singing, “Don’t let go. I need you to hang around. I’m so broke and foolishly in love.” The sadness you hear in his voice never leaves, but as the instrumentation builds, the song’s meaning seems to shift into something more hopeful than desperate.

Maraqopa will release February 21st. It will be Jurado’s 10th studio album.
