The Mountain Goats share 'Rain in Soho' from new album - listen here

The Mountain Goats have released album opener 'Rain in Soho', listen below.

The lyrics of “Rain in Soho” constitute a jeremiad of vanished things: friends, places, safe harbors. At the head of the procession of the lost stands London’s Batcave, the club that birthed the genre called “goth,” usually over and above the protests of its practitioners; riding atop Dan Perry’s ethereal vocal arrangement—voiced by members of the Nashville Symphony Chorus—and a driving piano, a turbulent lament gathers force:

No morning colder than the first frost
No friends closer than the ones we’ve lost
…though you repent, and don sackcloth, and try to make nice
You can’t cross the same river twice

Goths was recorded at Blackbird Studios, Nashville; produced by Brandon Eggleston; and mixed by Scott Solter. Woodwinds were arranged and played by Matt Douglas. The Mountain Goats are John Darnielle, Peter Hughes, Jon Wurster, and Matt Douglas and are gothic for life.
