‘Cowboy Boots’ is an absolutely crushing love song. Just Jens and an acoustic guitar getting through vivid dreams that he wants to reveal something new. “In my next dream, I want a pair of cowboy boots,” he sings. It’s not a big ask, but he wants them to take him “anywhere but back to you”. Whenever the follow-up to Night Falls Over Kortedala, you know it’s going to be jaw-droppingly beautiful and sad, in equal measure. Listen to ‘Cowboy Boots’ below, ‘The End Of The World Is Bigger Than Love’ here, and watch two new tracks live over at Stereogum.
