Westerman has shared a new song from his forthcoming debut album Your Hero Is Not Dead, which drops June 5th, 2020 via Play It Again Sam (and Partisan in North America). “The Line” is a gentle and complex song that Westerman eloquently grapples with societal confines over a shapeshifting electronic backdrop.
Westerman shares about writing the track, “I was thinking about moral relativism when I wrote this. The ever-shifting parameters of what is and isn’t acceptable. This applies to many things – gender, human rights, parenting, politics. I don’t believe that this means there’s no right and wrong, but normative values are constantly in flux – hopefully as we continue to be more compassionate.“
