Sondre Lerche unveiled a breezy, sun-kissed single called “I’m Always Watching You” in October. This week, he’s returned with a fresh, re-recorded version of the voyeuristic cut. Dubbed “I’m Always Watching You Too”, it’s cool and metallic to the touch and finds the Norwegian singer-songwriter sounding more desperate than before.

Lerche spoke about the new version in a statement to Stereogum:

“The night before I was going to record ‘I’m Always Watching You’, I awoke from dream about the song. In the dream the song was slower, anchored by a sluggish dub-groove, and a narrative that was turning on me: I was being watched. I had been found out. It proved impossible to bridge the dream with the more natural, realistic version that became the original take on the song. But I couldn’t let go of the dream, and the hazy recording I made on my phone in the middle of that night became my guide for a different take on the same dream. A response, of sorts: ‘I’m Always Watching You Too.'”

The troubadour is scheduled to tour North America next year, teasing what appears to be a new album called Pleasure. The forthcoming effort would mark the follow-up to 2014’s Please.
