Kevin Morby has released a new standalone single, “US Mail.” It was originally debuted during his Sundowner livestream last week; however, the new track is not a part of the album.
“‘US Mail’ is a song I wrote about a mother communicating with her daughter via the USPS from within an inpatient rehab facility,” Morby wrote in a statement (via press release). “Restricted from any forms of electronic communication, the two must rely on postcards carried by the United States Postal Service to reach one another.”
Morby also called on his fans to write him letters, as his PO Box address is featured on the single’s artwork (pictured below): “Please feel free to write me a letter and continue sending mail to your loved ones to support the USPS. It’s service has been integral to my career and I have been passionate about both sending and receiving physical mail since I was a child. It is simply one of my favorite things. I will do my best to write you back, but even if I don’t, please know that your letters mean the world to me and that I read and cherish them all.”
