“I kneel down and say grace for the comforts the world bestows on me,” Davies sings. “And the great corporations providing our every need/ And those big neon signs telling us what to eat/ And every shop window goods are designed to please/ Oh but I ask/ Where is the poetry?”

Americana debuts in full on April 21. Listen to “Poetry” here:
