Americana duo Widowspeak have unveiled the first track from their forthcoming new album, Almanac, which is out on February 11th via Captured Tracks.

Despite its title, and Molly Hamilton's softly spoken introduction of "think of me, how I used to be," 'Ballad Of The Golden Hour' is a huge sounding track (especially around the 3 minute mark). Maybe that's producer Kevin McMahon's (Swans, Real Estate) influence kicking in?
