Seth Glier's Brand New Single "Stages" Premieres On Pop Dust

Pop Dust described Seth Glier's brand new single "Stages" as "highly fresh" and "inventive" -- check out the Pop Dust song premiere, as well as the additional feature on Earmilk!

"I wrote this shortly after I got married. For several weeks after the ceremony, I was floating above the world. It was as if I knew this secret and only my wife knew the language. The power of ritual is that it brings us to different stages and thresholds of consciousness. I wanted to capture this magical floating vibe in the production and keep the lyrics honest and open. The feeling is "be patient and your world will unfold before you."' - Seth Glier / Stages

Glier is currently out on tour. Check out the full list of tour dates here & stream/download "Stages" here
