Wooden Wand has shared another single off his upcoming album, Clipper Ship.

Of School’s Out, James Jackson Toth says it “uses summer vacation as a metaphor for a lifetime spent on Earth: existence as a brief event occurring between one unknown darkness (the end of one school year, birth) and another (the beginning of a new school year, death). Present throughout are the themes that run through the rest of the album: sacrifice, accountability, and the preciousness of time.

It is yet another fine example of his beautifully contemplative and bittersweet songwriting. An absolute gem.

Watch the video, stream the song and Clipper Ship is out on the 5th May, so you can order it from Bandcamp here.
