Some people listen to songs to find themselves in the lyrics. Others listen to hear a narrative play out that allows them to dream and ponder. And others want to hear a songwriter’s anguish. This writer certainly leans towards the latter two and nowhere is that more apparent than on Midlake’s new song “Noble.”

The lead single, from the band’s forthcoming For The Sake of Bethel Woods, which is out March 18 on ATO Records, is a tender and vulnerable ode to drummer McKenzie Smith’s son who was born with a rare brain disorder. Take a listen to the song “>here and if you feel compelled donate to the cause here. For The Sake of Bethel Woods marks the band’s first time working with an outside producer, none other than GRAMMY® Award-winner John Congleton (St. Vincent, Explosions in the Sky, Sharon Van Etten).

Equally as important the band returns to a live stage in their home town of Denton, TX on March 9 and 10. Their North American headlining tour kicks off May 8 in Nashville. Tourdates can be found below.
