 Westerman shares a new song from his forthcoming debut album Your Hero Is Not Dead, out June 5th 2020 via Play It Again Sam (and Partisan in North America). “Waiting on Design” begins with a slight buzz, then slowly builds into a beautifully intricate cut on emotional limbo and trepidation. The song is the third single from his album following Think I’ll Stay and Blue Comanche.

Speaking on the inspiration behind “Waiting on Design”, Westerman shares: “I was thinking about the absurdity of the self, and how nobody wants to look at themselves from the perspective of the people they hurt. What’s interesting to me about storytelling isn’t necessarily the stories themselves, but the mutual connection that comes from people’s understanding of what’s being conjured by that story.”

Due to the ongoing situation surrounding COVID-19, Westerman’s London, Berlin and Paris dates have been rescheduled to August and October. Tickets are on sale now here and all previously purchased tickets remain valid. You can also check out which recently launched as a new interactive website that features a custom playlist of songs that inspired the new album, animated illustrations and future sneak peeks of new music before it’s released.

Your Hero Is Not Dead is the follow-up to his critically-acclaimed Ark EP. Recorded alongside his close friend and producer Nathan Jenkins (A.K.A. Bullion) at first in Southern Portugal before finishing the process in London, Your Hero Is Not Dead is an album about empathy and compassion, struggle and release, and all the ways we contradict and battle within ourselves. The project is full of supremely crafted, groove-hinged songs about moral, political, and ethical grey areas, that find Westerman attempting to resolve external issues by looking inward.
