On April 4th Jagjaguwar will release a new 7″ and digital single by Lia Ices featuring a new interpretation of Pink Floyd’s “Wish You Were Here.”

Drawing a parallel between Lia Ices and Pink Floyd is much easier than anticipated — they share a love for space that is both palpable and patient. If you’ve been curious about a starting point with her, please start here. The A-side originally appeared on MOJO Magazine’s tribute to Pink Floyd’s mighty Wish You Were Here. Lia’s take on the title track soars high and quickly nose dives back to Earth. The B-side takes a turn at “Late Night”, the closing track to Syd Barrett’s solo debut The Madcap Laughs. On it, Lia balances just the right amount of jangle-y brawn and off-kilter poise that one of our best love songs deserves.
