The latest single from The Duke Of Norfolk is a tantalizing preview of his new album, “Attendre et Espérer,” due out later this spring. The new track is prefaced by over a minute of strings, the steady hum of a cello periodically broken by a flurry of viola and violin. That instrumental, “Dylan Thomas,” soon gives way to the second part of the medley, “Bitter Bitter,” a beautiful folk rock movement that rides the almost meditative vocals of singer Adam Howard.

The Vancouver, Washington-based artist will release the single via Mint 400 Records on April 20.

The Duke Of Norfolk plays an album release show in Portland at Mississippi Pizza on April 22.
