Foster The People’s memorable, grooving and addictively dreamy “Lamb’s Wool” is soaked in emotion, and described by front-man Mark Foster as “a three part perspective on life, death, and what waits on the other side.” We’re elated to deliver this one to radio!
“This became a healing salve for us to honor the people we’ve loved, and lost. I’m happy we kept chasing the song and tackled this topic with a gentle touch. It wasn’t an easy thing to honestly write about. The subject of death is so challenging to our internal fears, belief systems, and theologies. The best part for me personally, was getting to play the demo for my uncle when the lyrics were finished, before he passed away. It was a special gift for me to be able to communicate my love for him in the best way I know how – through this song.” — Mark Foster (on “Lamb’s Wool”)
