Critically acclaimed Seattle rock band Walking Papers released their new single, “What Did You Expect?,” today. Listen / purchase HERE. In celebration of the release, the track and video exclusively premiered at Loudwire yesterday. The online rock magazine stated, “The new song arrives with a darkly sinister vibe, with Angell letting his bluesy vocal and story revealing lyrics hover over the backdrop of a steadily dark guitar line and distinctive haunting keys.”
“What Did You Expect?” is penned by principals Jefferson Angell and Benjamin Anderson and represents a continuation of the impactful and artful rock and blues sound Walking Papers have developed. “Not all songs arrive knowing what they are about and as a writer one is left operating on faith. ‘What Did You Expect’ was built from the line, ‘I never promised to be an angel.’ The song is still speaking to me but at the moment I believe it’s an antihero’s request for empathy,” says Angell.
The track comes from Walking Paper’s anticipated new album, The Light Below, which is due out early 2021on Carry On Music – a new music and artist management company led by industry veteran Tom Lipsky. “Jeff and Ben continue to evolve, innovate, and surprise,” stated Lipsky. “Walking Papers never play it safe, and that is one of many qualities that led to us working together again. The team at Carry On is excited to be a part of the band’s next chapter.”
