Chris Cohen has released his new self-titled album via Captured Tracks. Listen here.
“My parents got divorced while I was making this record,” he says. “They were married for 53 years and my father spent most of his life in the closet, hiding both his sexual identity and various drug addictions. For me it was like being relieved of a great burden, like my life could finally begin.” It is this sense of truth and freedom that is woven into the very fabric of the record even as it grapples with complicated emotions. “I hoped that by writing about what was closest to me at the time, I might share something of myself and where I came from,” Cohen says.
