"New Van Hunt + He remade his debut album"
Sat Feb-01-20 02:57 PM by BlakStaar

  

          

His newest release, "gram," is inspired by Instagram. It dropped on January 5, 2020:
https://vanhunt.bandcamp.com/album/gram
"to promote my last tour i arranged a song for each region we would be visiting. i gave a nod to the region by referencing an artist from that region, or a familiar part of the region, within the song. because the instagram format only allowed for :60 video posts, the collection really took on the shape of the gram and those restrictions. the album artwork only includes posts from the 'gram'."

When I got the Bandcamp email release about "gram" last month, I realized he dropped an album in April 2019 called "TRIM." Basically, he remade his debut album. It's pretty dope.

Revisiting these songs wasn’t the nostalgia trip one might imagine.
“Fifteen years is not that long ago – and yet, at the pace we live our lives, many, many things have happened in that time. And those things forced me to look at the songs like an empty room after a toddler has left it. You can almost hear the child’s voice ringing in your ears,” explains Van Hunt.

“There are things that have happened to me in the last 15 years that seem to make sense only when I look back and sing the words to my first record. It seems like they were written to explain the aftermath of what was to come.”

More new, new.
https://vanhunt.bandcamp.com/album/fifti
released February 8, 2020

"my fiftieth bday is on March 8. that's 30 days away. each day leading up to then I'll add one song from a set of my favorite tunes that I've recorded over the years to this playlist. and on the 30th day, March 8, I'll give you a swanky, novo joint. the first one is 'muted symphony'. this song is written over a gorgeous Sly Stone chord progression. the lyric is autobio. i was afraid to let people hear inside my head. i thot they'd b terrified or so aroused they'd take the music from me. now, i just give it to you good."

I like Van Hunt, but the production on that album always turned me off of the material.
