Donovan Woods is a songwriter adept at magnifying the tiniest moments of human intimacy, and in “She Waits For Me to Come Back Down,” his new duet with Katie Pruitt, they explore the ability of love’s grace to overcome unhealthy imbalances.

The song is a KUTX Song of the Day and one you “can’t overlook” today (9.24), here:

Off Woods’ forthcoming ‘Without People’ full-length album (due Nov. 6), “She Waits For Me to Come Back Down” is produced by James Bunton and vocal producer Todd Clark (Dua Lipa, Noah Kahan, Phillip Phillips). Fans can stream and purchase the album tomorrow (9.25), here:

"Katie Pruitt and I wrote this together and it was her idea — a love song for her girlfriend, I think,” says Woods. "I love the mood in this song. It’s lovely and sweet, but steeped in a bit of worry that we may be hearing about a slightly unhealthy relationship. But aren’t all the good ones? A friend of mine told me after hearing it that, “I’m a mess and she’s a masterpiece,” is a line that could only be written by a woman about a woman. I don’t know if that’s true, but luckily that is the case here."

Woods and Pruitt performed “She Waits For Me to Come Back Down” on tour in 2019, and with the audience’s reaction, they knew it had to be recorded for Woods’ album as a duet.

Woods and Pruitt will host a live conversation on Instagram next Tues., Sept. 29. Fans can tune-in at 5 PM CT / 6 PM ET via

As part of the ‘Donovan Woods With People Project’ supporting independent creators and bridging art and music culture during the pandemic, Woods will share the song’s accompanying video, which features LA-based choreographer/dancer Mackenzie Martin (Missy Elliot, LuLuLemon, Sephora, more), performing an interpretive dance to the song at the Imperial Sand Dunes near the California/Mexico border.
