It's a steadily marching slow-burner with a strong swagger that should help build build anticipation the the set's June 2 release. 

"Delilah" is the band's fourth song released in the build up the LP, following "Ship to Wreck," "What Kind of Man" and "St. Jude." It builds gracefully as Welch croons out over down tempo piano before a pounding drum kicks in to lead the track to a full swing.
