#48 Field Report – I Am Not Waiting Anymore

For the first single of a debut album, ‘I Am Not Waiting Anymore’ sounds remarkably assured and controlled. But when you consider the background of the man behind Field Report – Chris Porterfield was member of DeYarmond Edison, the former band of Bon Iver’s Justin Vernon – it is perhaps not so surprising. Of the song’s title,¬†Porterfield told NPR: “It became almost a mantra for me. The song is about getting over past mistakes and circumstances, and embracing our own agency in life. We all have choices to make daily.” The eponymous debut album is out on May 27.
