New Music – Keaton Henson – Alright

“Don’t make me go… Don’t make me go outside” a lovely piano track from Keaton Henson, the first taste of his new album which will be released on September 16th. See what you think below.

Keaton Henson announces new album, ‘Kindly Now’ (September 16th)
New track – ‘Alright’ – premieres today via Play It Again Sam

Keaton Henson will release his third official studio album, ‘Kindly Now’, on September 16th via Play It Again Sam – a new track, the beautiful ‘Alright’, premieres today. Having sold out the Roundhouse earlier this year, Keaton has also confirmed plans for his biggest European headline shows to date, including a show at London’s Palladium on November 18th.

Airing today, ‘Alright’ was written in Los Angeles shortly after the release of Henson’s acclaimed second album, ‘Birthdays’. Struggling with the apparent trade-off of having to put himself on display in order to make the music he loved, ‘Alright’ describes a very English way of grinning through pain (and also the sense that despite your world shifting so quickly, maybe you haven’t changed very much at all). It’s a stunning introduction to ‘Kindly Now’, a record which simultaneously broadens Keaton’s canvas – more electronic in places, more classical in others – yet also reflects a life-long love of Randy Newman. ‘Kindly Now’ is ultimately Keaton Henson’s most emotionally stripped-back album thus far, an unheroic and unsettling examination of past loves, the role of the artist, and owning up to your own destruction.
