Matthew E. White announces new album 'K Bay' out September 10th via Domino
1 June 2021
First single 'Genuine Hesitation' out now
On the heels of releasing a staggering collaboration with the legendary Lonnie Holley, Matthew E. White today announced his new, long-awaited solo album, K Bay, will be released on September 10th 2021 via Domino. The kaleidoscopic first single “Genuine Hesitation” is out today alongside a new video.
The single’s visual counterpart is a Super 8-shot album trailer directed by White and Shawn Brackbill, which previews the LP and introduces the friends and collaborators across Richmond, Virginia that played key roles in its creation: Spacebomb’s trusted house band (bassist Cameron Ralston, drummer Pinson Chanselle, and orchestral arranger Trey Pollard), along with multi-instrumentalist Alan Parker, keyboardists Devonne Harris and Daniel Clarke, and engineer/mixer Adrian Olsen.
The LP was produced by White and recorded between his beloved Kensington Avenue home studio (and album namesake) K Bay, Richmond’s Montrose Recording and his own local institution, Spacebomb Studio. K Bay finds the singer/songwriter, bandleader, and musical polymath expanding every facet of his creative process and harnessing the full power of his community, culminating in the best record of his career.
K Bay, White’s first solo album in six years, is the astounding record he has forever aspired to make. A bold reclamation of independence and identity, K Bay establishes White as one of his era’s most imaginative artists. These 11 pieces are retro-futurist magic tricks that feel instantly classic and contemporary, the product of a musical mind that has internalized the lessons of his idols and used them to build a brilliant world of his own.
More than love, romance, or self-reliance, this is the animating ideal of K Bay—that we can forever strive for something better, no matter how flawed or blessed we have already been. A decade ago, Matthew E. White made a classic beauty no one expected; on K Bay, he has made a masterpiece by harnessing what he’s learned from that community and life itself in entirely unexpected, electrifying, and reaffirming ways.
