Christopher Owens of Girls explains in an open letter:

Dear Lawrence,

I wonder who will be writing me in twenty years, and what they'll be looking for. Don't worry, I'm not writing to talk about the things I'm looking for in life, I'll spare you that. I'm writing to FINALLY be able to send you a song that I wrote in 2008. When I wrote this song I was the guitarist in a band called Holy Shit, Matt Fishbeck (our fearless leader) was the one who turned me on to Felt. I fell in love with your songs, I wouldn't stop listening, I loved you and Maurice.

To make a long story a shorter story, I once wrote this song and wondered what you would sing to it, I could sometimes hear your voice but I didn't dare write down any words. I never thought for a second you would ever hear it, I wondered if you would like it, all that. I called it Lawrence, after you. To send it to you now is incredible for me, I want to show you I'm thankful. You gave me something to love, or in other words you gave me love itself. You took something that can sometimes feel so common and dull and brought it back to life with so much beauty and verse. You gave me happiness, and you still do.

Anyway, I'd just like you to have it, it's yours, take it as yours. Do anything you want with it. I hope you enjoy listening to it. And all the best to you forever and ever.

With love - Christopher Owens

Kill Me Sarah: We had the slow and soft gait of those who still have time. We stayed in the expectation, gazing over the horizon, the headphones on, deaf to the inner world. We were still young men, skilled for the imbalances, even if already a little too old.

The songs had something serious and light at the same time. The insidious notes and lyrics had taken time to penetrate under the skin. Or was it just hope that something or somebody will come? We dragged those years with girls with soft hearts. The girls of september, in the gray streets were like these songs. Serious and light.

The sparkling guitars like grains of sand in the sun, stuck on the fingers, we had stayed with her hair blowing in the wind, thinking it would have blown away the ghost of her perfume. Fragile memories, like the sound of glass cathedrals of the first Felt albums. http://feltadeclaration.tumblr.com/post/12702069970/kmssunlight

And so goes the letter from Girls front man and songwriter Christopher Owens to Felt, Denim and Go Kart Mozart front man and songwriter, Lawrence.

The letter tells you everything you need to know about the song, which will be released in the UK and Europe on limited edition, heart-shaped red vinyl through Fantasy Trashcan (Turnstile) on 28th November 2011, and December 12th in the U.S. on True Panther Sounds. http://feltadeclaration.tumblr.com/post/12464786945/christopherlawrence
