The Whigs' Parker Gispert is still in the midst of making his new solo album, which he hopes to have finished by the end of the month. But he's happy to have "Through The Canvas," whose video is premiering below, out for fans to hear what he's been up to.
The psychedelic-tinged track is actually the first thing Gispert wrote for the as-yet-untitled album, sitting in a field on the farm about an hour outside of Nashville where he recently moved. "I would just get my guitar and walk into the middle of this big, open field and put my stool out there and write songs," Gispert tells Billboard. "I was just feeling a little stuck. I didn't really know what to do as a solo artist and couldn't really conceive of what my sound would be or what direction I was going to go in. So I just went out there in that big field one day and wrote this song and that kind of jump-started the whole process. It gave me a direction for the sound of my solo stuff." And Gispert doesn't mind if the genre is coined 'Open Field Rock' or something like that.
