Podge Lane releases the contemplative ballad ‘Change In The Weather’

January 20, 2023

‘Change In The Weather’ is third single off of Lane’s anticipated sophomore album, Common Country Misconceptions, set for release March this year.

This is the first Podge Lane release of 2023, after an exciting 2022 which included a full tour for his debut album Outer Monologues in Ireland and London, press and media coverage from Hot Press Magazine, American Songwriter, RTÉ, as well as support dates opening for American folk artists Charlie Parr and the Brother Brothers.

Building on this success, as well as the two previous album cuts ‘Paradise’ and ‘Battle Wounds’, Lane introduces ‘Change In The Weather’ with a sigh and plucked acoustic guitar, as he sings:

‘Change in the weather, now you’re doing better. But every time that it starts to snow, you think of the fact that you were on your own for so many years, and here come the tears.’

Ranging in influences from John Prine and Kevin Morby to Madison Cunningham and Bright Eyes, ‘Change In The Weather’ is a warm and contemplative ballad, exploring an honest tale of overthinking. Perfect for the January cold, the warm and minimalist instrumentation swells with Lane’s impassioned vocals, pleading the listener to stop looking for signs.

When talking about the single, Lane shares, “this song is about looking for signs in silly things, which I’ve looked for a lot! Thinking back on the amount of times I’ve thought “if it’s raining out something bad is going to happen”, or if the sun was shining there was a bit of hope. We’re always fearing the worst and this is a song to say “let’s snap out of it.” It’s my life, not the weathers.”

The release of ‘Change In The Weather’ also coincides with Lanes upcoming performance at Ireland’s inaugural ‘Your Roots Are Showing’ Folk Conference, as well as the announcement of his Common Country 2023 Tour.
