Sam Evian Shares Two New Tracks

Thursday, 17 May 2018 Written by Laura Johnson


Sam Evian has shared two songs from his new album.

'You, Forever', his second LP, will arrive on June 1 via Saddle Creek. Head below to listen to Country and to check out a video for the title track.

Discussing Country, which was inspired by a trip he took with his girlfriend, Hannah Cohen, Evian said:

“For a hundred miles we didn’t see a person or even a tree. Then all of a sudden this giant dust cloud appeared which turned out to be ten cowboys on horses lassoing cows. It was the most real thing I’ve ever seen."

Regarding You, Forever, he continued:

"A  few  years  back, I  had a prolific  week of writing after  I fell on some icy concrete  and smacked my head on a steel  grate. I’m sure I sustained some sort  of concussion, which left me feeling pretty  lucid. I had been thinking about Bowie a lot, and decided to try and write something with a 'Rock and Roll Suicide' kinda vibe. ‘You, Forever' just tumbled out of my head, lyrics, melody and all. It was kind of stream of consciousness, which is rare for me. I shelved the song and forgot about it, but dug it out when I was preparing to make this record. It was exciting to sing the words again. They felt more potent than I remembered, but still had the charm of a nice head injury. ‘If you're anxious, If you're worn, if you're keeping to yourself on the telephone’...who isn’t?”

The New York-based singer-songwriter will appear at the Great Escape in Brighton this weekend, prior to headline shows in Bristol, Birmingham, London, Glasgow and Leeds. He will also support Unknown Mortal Orchestra at Manchester's Albert Hall on May 26 alongside Deerhunter and Boy Azooga.

And would we be comfortable releasing the contents of our lives for the whole world to hear and critique?
Kamasi Washington - Heaven and Earth (Album Review)
Tue 26 Jun 2018
On Kamasi Washington’s second solo record, ‘Heavenand Earth’, the L.A. bandleader has called up an impressive team of players including Tony Austin, Ronald Bruner, Jr., Brandon Coleman, Cameron Graves, Terrance Martin, Miles Mosley and Thundercat. The result is a distinguished double-album of rich intensity that channels galactic fusion, sounds from ‘70s blaxploitation and sprawling jazz spirituals.
