A. Savage of Parquet Courts has signed to Rough Trade Records as a solo artist. His first single for the label is “Thanksgiving Prayer.” Watch the video, and check out the musician’s upcoming tour dates, below.

Savage said of the new song in a statement:

Well, Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday, and every year on that day I write down some words having to do with gratitude. Some years are better than others, but the last one I celebrated these words just sort of came out of me. It was a pretty special holiday actually, because in fact we were recording this song, but I made everybody take a day off. [Producer] John Parish and his wife, Michelle, were kind enough to allow me to take over their kitchen to cook the meal for everyone. [Drummer and percussionist] Dylan [Hadley] and I were the only Americans, so there was a bit of explaining to do. So it was the band, the studio staff and the Parish family, and it was an absolutely lovely day. I was in awe of the kindness and mercy, and that’s what the song is about; being in awe of humans. When I got back to my room I was on such a high so I started writing and this song is what was on the page the next morning, when we recorded it.

Parquet Courts released their latest LP, Sympathy for Life, in 2021 via Rough Trade. A. Savage shared his solo debut, Thawing Dawn, in 2017 via Dull Tools.
