Steve Gunn announces his fourth album The Unseen In Between, where he explores his own emotional landscapes with his most complex, fully realised songs to date. Today’s announcement comes with first single ‘New Moon’ and its accompanying lyric video. Watch below!
‘New Moon’ begins in the mode of a deep track with its upright bass and sparse tremolo guitar. But during the song’s final minutes, strings double the melody, and then the guitar rushes headlong, pulling ahead in a wave of ecstatic deliverance. It is a brief but liberating solo, complemented by one of his most arresting vocal performances.
In 2016, Gunn released Eyes On The Lines. It should have been a triumphant moment, but two weeks later, Gunn’s father and namesake died following a two-year struggle with cancer. During his sickness, he and his son had connected as never before, listening to one another’s experiences and understanding one another’s perspectives.
Produced by frequent collaborator James Elkington and engineered by Daniel Schlett, the immaculately recorded The Unseen In Between is a gorgeously empathetic record that attempts to recognise the worries of the world and offer some timely assurance. The album will be released on 18th January 2019 and is available for pre-order here.
