After an impressive showing at 2016’s Eaux Claires Festival, folk trio The Staves have been invited by Justin Vernon to return to this year’s installment of the Wisconsin event. One song that’s sure to pop up on their setlist is the newly unveiled song “Tired As Fuck”.

The track has been a staple of the Staves’ live show for the last 12 or so months, but today represents the first time the studio version has been released. “‘Tired As Fuck’ was a song written in the midst of a relationship breaking down,” the band explains in a statement. “Lamenting the lack of some sort of guidance, but also accepting and resigning yourself to fact that you have to soldier on. Keep going. There is no helping hand.”

In addition to the fresh single, the Staves have shared its corresponding Dan Huiting-directed music video. They’ve also shared its B-side, a remastered version of “Train Tracks”, which originally appeared as a bonus cut off their 2015 album, If I Was. Check ’em out below.
