Plains share new track 'Abilene'

With their highly-anticipated debut album set to arrive in the coming months, Plains, the collaborative project of Waxahatchee's Katie Crutchfield and Jess Williamson, have now delivered the next cut to be lifted from their forthcoming full-length.

The new single 'Abilene' comes accompanied by a brilliant new video, directed by Corbett Jones and Nick Simonite, and follows on from the previously shared lead track 'Problem With It' in previewing their first LP 'I Walked With You A Ways', which is out on the 14th October via Anti-Records.

Speaking about the new offering, Crutchfield said, "The song 'Abilene' really solidified the vision of the album for me. I'll never forget how giddy I felt when Jess sent me the original demo. In a very stereotypical-of-a-songwriter way, Jess felt unsure if it fit or made sense and I reassured her immediately that this was probably my favourite song of the bunch. She achieved something really special in my view, which is writing a classic country waltz that feels extremely modern."

While Williamson adds, "In the video for 'Abilene', my dear friend Adriene Mishler plays the narrator of the song. We see her struggle in the final stages of a romantic relationship and then make the hard decision to choose herself and leave. I think we all have our own personal 'Abilene'. Maybe it’s a place where you used to live and things didn’t turn out as planned, like in the song. It could also be a relationship that ended in disappointment, or a dream that turned into a hard reality, or even an old version of yourself that’s better left in the past. 'Abilene' is a song about knowing your worth, having courage in the face of an uncertain future, and trusting your gut."
