Last month we shared our review of Scabbard, the first single from Trey Anastasio’s forthcoming Traveler album, due October 16th on ATO Records. The song marks a major evolution for the Phish front man and will be released as a 7″ inch vinyl single tomorrow. What will be on the flip side of the single? Glad you asked, it’s an Anastasio/Marshall tune called Pigtail.
Pigtail was debuted by Phish at the DCU Center in Worcester, Mass. on December 28, 2010 and has yet to be performed again by the quartet. However, Pigtail resurfaced as part of Anastasio’s solo repertoire last fall and was recorded for the Peter Katis-produced Traveler LP. Katis once again fulfills Trey’s goal of using the studio as an instrument by layering vintage keys, guitar wails and other effects behind Big Red’s potent vocal delivery.
But don’t take our word for it, listen for yourself as we present the internet premiere of Pigtail…
