If you’re a fan of the band Nickel Creek (like I am), and you’re super-excited about their reunion and upcoming album (like I am), then you should definitely check out this just-released song from A Dotted Line (like I did).
“21st of May” was written by Sean Watkins the day before Pastor Harold Camping (wrongly) predicted the Rapture would occur — The band jokes on YouTube: “It was a close call but we made it” — and it’s sung from Camping’s perspective:
They laughed while Noah built his boat
And cried when came the rain.
They mock me now, but I will float
On the 21st of May.
Awesome song. Can’t wait to hear the rest of the album.
