Orville Peck shares a new single "turn To Hate"
Masked enigmatic country crooner Orville Peck is sharing new single "Turn to Hate", taken from his upcoming debut LP 'Pony', which is due March 22nd via Sub Pop. Orville is set to play a London residency next week.
"Turn to Hate" is a song about Orville's struggle in keeping his resentment from building into hatred. A continuous battle between embracing the strength & freedom of being an outsider and the inevitable struggle of wanting normalcy and familiarity - Orville's dilemma as a cowboy. He sings about having to constantly repair situations in his wake, and fighting with himself over his decision making. To stay or go; to cry or not; whether to leave without saying goodbye in order to soften the blow; And all the while wishing someone would tell him that they "can't stay" - to make the decision for him.
In the words of Orville himself, “'Turn to Hate' is essentially a song about the anxiety that comes with being on the outside of things. Treading the line between existing as a loner but not letting that solitude turn into resentment. All that wrapped in a good ole’ country stomping barn-raiser!”
