New York, NY (Top40 Charts) Seattle-based Fences, the alter-ego of musician/songwriter Christopher Mansfield, is debuting a new single titled "A Mission" off of his upcoming LP (his first since 2015's 'Lesser Oceans'), to be released this summer.
"A Mission" is now streaming on all DSPs: https://orcd.co/amission.
A video for the song is streaming on Top40-Charts.com!

Of the new track, Mansfield says, "1959 Jack Kerouac appeared on The Steve Allen show. In the interview he said it took him 3 weeks to write "On The Road" but was on the road for 7 years. Nearly 60 years later this hit me. Life is long and art is short. It gave me a sense of relief in the fact it takes me some time to release new music. I can't write what I haven't seen with my own eyes. Most days I would trade this obsession with normalcy and happiness but paint can be toxic and paintings so beautiful. "A Mission" is the first song to be released off "Failure Sculptures". The video was made by my dear friend Cheyenne Randall. I am scared half to death. I love you all so much."

Perhaps most well-known through his collaborations with Tegan and Sara (the latter of whom produced his 2010 self-titled debut album) and Macklemore (who he's teamed up with on various tracks), Fences will be announcing additional album details in the coming weeks.

Praise for FENCES:
"...a cohesive set of sweetly depressing folk-pop anthems and whimsical musings on stellar sophomore LP Lesser Oceans."- Idolator
"Fences...music is a fascinating amalgamation of emo and alt-country. His songs have drawn comparisons to everyone from The Cure to Hank Williams, and tracks such as "Girls with Accents" and "My Girl the Horse" certainly show Mansfield to be a slacker songwriter of some note."- Dallas Observer
"Reminiscent of Death Cab For Cutie, he creates lyric-heavy, melancholy music with gorgeous melodies."- Baeble Music
"The Seattle band -- led by songwriter Christopher Mansfield -- has drawn positive national attention…Melancholy and regret run through Fences' self-titled debut, which draws on Mansfield's songbook from 2004 to the present."- NPR
