New Constellation

Album: New Constellation (2013)

Songfacts®:

  • Released on the band's own label - Abe's Records - New Constellation was the first Toad the Wet Sprocket album in 16 years. This title track finds lead singer Glen Phillips singing about what he describes as "celestial-level love" - creating a new constellation by writing the name of a loved one in the sky.

    "The key to that song is awareness, devotion, gratitude," Phillips said in our interview. "A fairly recurrent theme throughout the record."
