William Wild Releases New Single, Song Featured In 'Wind River' Film Starring Jeremy Renner

Knoxville's own William Wild recently released "On an Island," a delightful single, and the first bit of new music since their last EP Steady Now. It's so incredibly chill, and the tasteful horns and keys complimenting Garrett Sale's vocals are just perfect. With the release of this song came an explanation of where the inspiration came from: 

‘On an Island’ is a song about a very specific moment on tour last year. A moment of clarity within a tornado of new experiences and big questions that I did/do not understand. I don’t remember what I was thinking about at the time, but I vividly remember the safety and weightless of my emotional state. I did everything I could on this track to preserve that moment into a recording. I hope you like it.

(***UPDATE: We realized that a lot of folks were coming here searching for William Wild's song, the end credits track from Wind River. We're so glad that you're here, and we've updated this post with the audio for that track below. Enjoy!) 

Another exciting bit of news for WW is that their song "Feather" the closing track from their 2014 self-titled record is featured in the new thriller Wind River starring Jeremy Renner and Elizabeth Olsen. The song is featured in the closing credits. Wind River won Best Director for Tyler Sheridan at this year's Cannes Film Festival. It's out now in select theaters.
