New York based songwriter Sam Evian recently announced his second album You, Forever on Saddle Creek with the release of the analogue rocker 'Health Machine'. Today he releases 'IDGAF'; a song much more mellow than its title might suggest.

In 'IDGAF', Sam Evian is in quieter and smoother mood, as he takes us into the quiet hours of the early morning where nothing stirs and he lays in bed - awake. The track winds its way along trails of absent thoughts, rendered through spare guitar melodies and Evian's softly sung lyricism. Even when he reaches the point of not caring anymore in the song's chorus, he still stays sweet and melodic, as if he doesn't want to disturb the quietness of the night all around him.

Evian says about the inspiration for the track: "I've always been a night owl, but lately that tendency has led me down the path of full-on insomnia. The insomnia is exacerbated by screen time, media time, coffee time, and time, in general. In bed, my insecurities linger and the kaleidoscope of anxiety starts to pull me into a strange, trance-like state. 'IDGAF' is one of my 5am songs. Sometimes when I'm deep in the well of nonsleep, I get up and write. I don't even remember doing it. The same thing happened with ‘Cactus’ on my last record. I think I tried to write a sort of mantra to coax myself into sleep. It must have worked."
