MJ Lenderman has shared a new song, his second for Anti-. It’s titled “Knockin,” and, naturally, its subject is a cover of Bob Dylan’s “Knockin on Heaven’s Door” by the golfer John Daly. Check it out below.
Lenderman recently performed “Knockin” during his set at the Pitchfork Music Festival in Chicago. In a statement about the song’s official release, he expanded on how “Knockin” worked its way into his set list:
“Knockin” follows the July single “Rudolph,” which Lenderman said was the first song he’d written after releasing Boat Songs last year. He also plays on Wednesday’s Rat Saw God, which arrived on Dead Oceans in April.
