Laura Veirs today shares her pulsing, hypnotic new song “Eucalyptus,” the third single off her forthcoming new album Found Light, due out on July 8th via her own Raven Marching Band Records. “This is a song about the community love I felt when I went through my divorce,” explains Veirs. “It’s also about new love and rediscovering myself as a solo person post-divorce.
