Over here in Brooklyn today, the weather is sixty degrees and the sun is shining down on our cold souls. With that being said, we're feeling pretty cheery, so our Song of the Day is fittingly "Watch Fire" from Laura Veirs featuring Sufjan Stevens
. The track, filled with acoustic diddles, is bound to put a spring in your step -- a pip in your pep, if you will (cue SNL
's "Great Day" sketch).
In all seriousness though, the two balance each other out perfectly, which makes sense since Veirs even shared that she thought of Stevens when she wrote it. "I heard his voice on this song when I wrote it. We've been friends for a long time and he's given me quite a few artistic pep talks over the years," she said in a statement. The vocal chemistry is undeniable, and we're excited for Veirs' full album, The Lookout,
set to drop on April 13th via Raven Marching Band.
