Wayfarer is out today!!!
I’ve been happily toiling away on a new album for you. With this record, I've gotten more into funk and dance influences, inspired by the two young East London producers I worked with. Because my life is so upbeat and happy these days (I’ve recently gotten married and I’m expecting a baby), I wanted a sound that was less cry-in-your-beer, and more drive-your-car-with-the-windows-down. This is 100% a summer album.
The title “Wayfarer” means “someone who wanders.” Touring musicians get to be traveling nomads having all sorts of adventures. I wanted to reflect that traveling theme.
First, we recorded a whole uptempo album that reflected the emotional direction my life was going in. There was only one thing missing at the end of this incredibly fun process though: the songwriter in me wanted more emphasis on the lyrics and bare vocal presentation. So when I got to the end I decided to record all the songs again, but as stripped-back acoustic versions, like doing covers of my own songs.
What you’re getting is therefore a double album: Disc One is the produced version that we made in East London, and Disc Two is the acoustic version that we recorded in a studio in West London.
