Click to listen to Waters' 'For the One'

After Van Pierszalowski's band, Port O'Brien, broke up last year, Pierszalowski moved to Oslo craving space – but he ultimately embarked on a world journey that culminated in the creation of his new project, Waters. During his travels, Pierszalowski wrote very raw and thought-out songs, which he recorded with a band upon his return to Oslo. Pierszalowski describes Waters' first track, the low-fi and incredibly catchy "For the One," as his "favorite song I've ever written. Usually I would feel bad for the other songs in saying that, but not with this one." Pierszalowski explains to Rolling Stone that "For the One" "sums up all of 'Out in the Light' and everything I've gone through over the last couple years."

Waters' debut "Out in the Light" hits stores on September 20th, but you can download "For the One" for free here.

“San Francisco Mabel Joy”

Mickey Newbury | 1969

A country-folk song of epic proportions, "San Francisco Mabel Joy" tells the tale of a poor Georgia farmboy who wound up in prison after a move to the Bay Area found love turning into tragedy. First released by Mickey Newbury in 1969, it might be more familiar through covers by Waylon Jennings, Joan Baez and Kenny Rogers. "It was a five-minute song written in a two-minute world," Newbury said. "I was told it would never be cut by any artist ... I was told you could not use the term 'redneck' in a song and get it recorded."
