Brooklyn-based country musician Dougie Poole has released his new single “Vaping on the Job.”
“It’s a thing that people do,” said Poole in conversation with FADER of the song’s titular activity, “it’s a thing that I’ve done. Depending on the job you’re doing, and depending on what you’re vaping, it can be reckless and stupid. But I think most people who vape on the job are just doing what they need to do to get through the day.”
A lot of people have to spend a lot of time at work pretending to be things they’re not. I think that a lot of the artists I know do this: 9am to 5pm, they’re hiding out all over New York City, doing their other jobs. For most of us, it’s just part of being an artist. But sometimes the work you do to sustain yourself, and your art, starts to take over and use all your energy. It can leave you feeling lost, out of touch with yourself. I wanted to write a song about that compromise, I guess.”

Poole also announced his sophomore album. Titled The Freelancer’s Blues, the new album will hit the airwaves June 12th via Wharf Cat Records.
