body / negative’s “Sleepy” is an ambient ode to their late parents

“Sleepy” is taken from body / negative‘s upcoming album Everett, out December 8.

Mastered by Slowdive’s Simon Scott, Everett is the third musical release from body / negative, the solo project of multi-instrumentalist and vocalist Andy Schiaffino. This album serves as an embodiment of Schiaffino‘s most intimate emotional spaces, navigating the complexities of illness and grief. Prior to the full album release, they unveiled a new single, “Sleepy,” created in collaboration with Midwife, who contributed to three songs on the record.

“This song is my absolute favorite on the album and maybe in my entire catalog,” Schiaffino stated on Instagram. “It’s the only song that instantly makes me cry. There is an accompanying music video that was created w/ Owen J. West that is comprised entirely of old footage of my parents. This song is wholly devoted to them.”
