William Elliott Whitmore will release his eighth full-length album I’m With You on October 16th. On his first release of original material since 2015’s Radium Death (ANTI-), Whitmore widens the horizon of his True North folksongs and twangy punked-up country, aided by his raspy voice, country-baked banjo and hard-strummed guitar.
Whitmore said of the single & video:
The song "My Mind Can Be Cruel to Me" is about perception. Our memories and thoughts can be torturous at times. Mark Twain called it the "devil's race track", when a line of thought and worry goes around and around in a circle inside our brains. Is the mind a separate entity from the body? At what point does it feel as though our brains are actually betraying us?
