Westerman "Waiting On Design"

Westerman has debuted his new single “Waiting on Design.” The track is off his debut release Your Hero Is Not Dead, available June 5th via Partisan/Play It Again Sam. Speaking on the inspiration behind “Waiting on Design”, Westerman shares: “I was thinking about the absurdity of the self, and how nobody wants to look at themselves from the perspective of the people they hurt. What’s interesting to me about storytelling isn’t necessarily the stories themselves, but the mutual connection that comes from people’s understanding of what’s being conjured by that story.”

“Waiting on Design” also arrives ahead of Westerman’s upcoming North American tour. The run will begin July 20th in Washington, DC with stops in New York and Toronto before heading to Chicago and the West Coast. Due to the ongoing situation surrounding COVID-19, UK and EU dates have been rescheduled to August and October. Tickets are on sale now at westerman.world and all previously purchased tickets remain valid. The site also features a custom playlist of songs that inspired the new album, animated illustrations and future sneak peeks of new music before it’s released.

Your Hero Is Not Dead is the follow-up to his critically-acclaimed Ark EP. Recorded alongside his close friend and producer Nathan Jenkins (A.K.A. Bullion) at first in Southern Portugal before finishing the process in London.
