Johnny Jewel Surprise Releases New LP 'Themes For Television'

Monday, 21 May 2018 Written by Laura Johnson

Johnny Jewel has released a surprise album.

'Themes For Television' is comprised of 21 tracks that he wrote when working on material for Twin Peaks: The Return. A physical release will follow on June 29 through Italians Do It Better.

Speaking about the record, Jewel said:

“I was about a year deep into recording what would become Windswept when I heard that David was making Season 3. It’s been a year since Chromatics performed at the Roadhouse. With disintegrated memory through the haze of television snow, I wanted to share a glimpse behind the red curtain.”

“The project began as a sonic exploration of the sounds I was hearing in my nightmares. I wanted to find my way out of the maze by focusing on beauty over fear — like the way the fractured sunrise looks in a dream.”

We can ponder the singles that’ll leap from radio waves or playlists into the fabric of our day-to-day. Here we’ve assembled 10 artists we believe will make 2019 one to remember—some of them are about to release debut records, others are starting to pound the pavement in support of music that deserve time to shine.

But then we also have bands like Puppy, who are able to cast that whole argument in the comic light it often deserves.
