Those who have been lucky enough to attend one of Daniel’s rare but ever-spellbinding solo live performances of the last couple years may recognize the title track Deerslayer. As Rossen explains: “Deerslayer started as an imaginary dialogue with the hunters I constantly heard roaming around outside my place in upstate, NY. They were always heard but never seen, and a constant reminder that I didn’t really belong there. Stylistically this song doesn’t really fit with the rest of the material I am working with now, but it still feels true to the experience I had. So I’d like it to exist in the world, and record store day seems like a great opportunity to give it a special physical release.”
The song is backed with a cover originally by Golden Suits. "You’re Crossing A River is a song by my old Dept. of Eagles bandmate, Fred Nicolaus, which he released as Golden Suits. I loved the lyric and Fred asked me to try a cover of it back when his last record came out. I tried to treat the song like I might have treated one of his tunes back in our Dept. of Eagles days, adding instrumental passages to mirror what’s going on in the lyric. If we were still making records together I would want to include this song.”
Deerslayer will be released with original artwork by J. Penry
