Debut solo album from The National frontman. Produced by Booker T. Jones. First single:
song is very good
wish I could live inside this man's voice
Record out October 2
Here for it.
booker t producing is WILD
Announcement four and a half months out? Hmm, don't like that. Song is great though!
Excited to hear this!
Chances of me adoring this record are very high
Like this song but I thought this would sound a bit further away from The National.
I felt this but also I couldn't properly imagine something with his voice on it that didn't sound like The National (that wasn't El Vy which is an album I don't remember much tbh)
Holy shit I completely forgot about that album
Yeah, that was the second part of what I was thinking. Matt's voice is just inextricable from The National. With that EL VY album, I really feel like those songs couldn't really exist as The National songs (especially not in 2015 before we had stuff like "Where Is Her Head," "The System..." and "Turtleneck"). Still, very curious to see what else is gonna be up with this album and I'll be just as satisfied if it sounds like a collection of stripped down The National tracks.
yeah don't get me wrong I hope he goes a little off the beaten path, I'd like to be surprised. but the track is nice
four months for a rollout jfc
the next single isn't coming out until August!
Hope I don't forget about this I really like the single, what a ridiculously long rollout though
Very daniel lanois
It’s good. Feels a bit more removed from The National than the other single too.
