A lungo collaboratore di Mark Lanegan, Queens Of The Stone Age, Chris Cornell e molti altri, Alain Johannes è pronto a tornare con un nuovo album solista: “Hum” verrà pubblicato il 31 luglio per Ipecac Recordings.
Il produttore/chitarrista ha commentato così l’esperienza:
It’s more about me than probably any album I’ve ever done. It was something I was striving for and needed to communicate. Coming out of a difficult period, I was liberated. I had lost people who were very close to me. I went through struggles with my own health. There’s a personal energy behind the way it was recorded and the feel of the songs. It’s a document of my life right now. You can think of the album title, Hum, a few ways. Of course, there’s a musical hum. There’s an electrical hum. To me, it suggests a sense of mystery. When you stop and listen to silence in nature, the hum is underneath the threshold of hearing. It’s a mysterious and magical sense of something existing, beautiful, and alive. It’s a blanket word for the sound of the ether—something that’s always been there, always will be there, and everything comes from it. It’s the common connection to everything.
