Trey Anastasio released a new song, “Lost In The Pack”, on his Facebook page on Wednesday afternoon. According to Trey’s post, the song was written by “Trey, Tom, and Scott” and recorded yesterday, March 17th, as people worldwide continue their social distancing practices in hopes of slowing the spread of the novel coronavirus.

Tom Marshall, Anastasio’s longtime lyricist/songwriting partner, confirmed to Live For Live Music that he is the aforementioned “Tom” and that Scott Herman, another longtime collaborator, is the aforementioned “Scott.” The song was shared along with a photo of a barefoot Trey hard at work on an acoustic guitar in what appears to be his home. The photo was credited to “Sue,” which we can only assume is his wife, Sue Anastasio.

The soft-spoken, Americana-style acoustic track offers a vulnerable and sincere message in times of such uncertainty: “I’m so far out, I’m in again, so long as you remain my friend.”

Listen to the new song below:

Trey Anastasio, Tom Marshall, Scott Herman – “Lost In The Pack”

“Lost in the Pack” Lyrics

There’s a little cave out back where I can go to hide
When I’m there I always phone you up to say goodbye
Somehow I can never seem to find the words I seek
Or maybe it’s just that the signal is too weak

Or maybe it’s that satellites are really hard to find
And my tiny dish was never properly aligned
The words I want to tell you just get lost up in the sky
Or maybe I just don’t wanna say goodbye

I’m so far gone, I’m barely here, caught in between
I’m nowhere near, I’m far beyond, lost in the pack, so far behind
I can’t come back

There’s a special stretch of road I drive to clear my mind
A river crosses underneath then back a couple times
Then it finally makes a turn; to where, I cannot say
Maybe it leads me back to you someday

I’m so far up, I’m out in space, can’t see ahead
I’ve lost my place, I’m so far out, I’m in again
So long as you remain my friend

So far gone, I’m barely here, caught in between, I’m nowhere near
I’m far beyond, lost in the pack, so far behind, I can’t come back
I’m so far up, I’m out in space, can’t see ahead, I’ve lost my place
I’m so far out, I’m in again, so long as you remain my friend

So long as you remain my friend
So long as you remain my friend

Trey Anastasio’s upcoming performances certainly haven’t been immune to the ongoing coronavirus cancellations plaguing the live music industry. All of Oysterhead‘s April shows have been canceled or postponed, and Wednesday brought news that the trio’s appearance at Bonnaroo has been pushed back until September along with the rest of the festival. We’ll have to wait and see regarding the fate of the scheduled upcoming dates for Phish and Trey Anastasio Band.
