Devendra Banhart shares his latest single, "Nun"

31 August 2023, 15:00 | Written by Tyler Damara Kelly

"Nun" is the third single to be taken from his upcoming album Flying Wig, which was produced by Cate Le Bon.

"Nun" was written in a Nunnery in Northern Nepal," Banhart says. "It’s a simple metaphor: we can run to something, run for something, run out of something… an archetype with plenty of elasticity.”

The track follows "Sirens" and the album's lead single, "Twin".

Flying Wig, recorded in Topanga Canyon, Southern California with acclaimed Welsh musician Cate Le Bon as producer, is a landscape of recurrent dualities; a can of paradoxes, a box of worms. What goes up, must come down, eventually. “It’s about transmuting despair into gratitude, wounds into forgiveness, grief into praise,” ruminates Banhart.

Devendra Banhart's forthcoming album, Flying Wig, arrives on 22 September via Mexican Summer, and is available to pre-order.
