Noah Gundersen announces new album 'A Pillar of Salt'

First single 'Sleepless In Seattle' out now

 Acclaimed singer-songwriter Noah Gundersen has announced that his new album ‘A Pillar of Salt’ will be released via Cooking Vinyl on 08 October. Pre-orders are available now here.

Gundersen’s fifth solo LP and first new album in more than two years, ‘A Pillar of Salt’ is heralded by the release of lush new single, ‘Sleepless In Seattle,’ available now at all digital platforms.

I moved to Seattle in 2009,” Gundersen says of the city the song is after, “a small town kid, just 20 years old. I lived out of my sleeping bag in garages, under tables, on couches, until finally moving into a place in the Queen Anne neighborhood with some friends. There was a feeling that anything was possible. Over time, like all things, the city changed. The few bands that ‘made it’ moved away, while the less fortunate gracefully bowed out when the insurmountable odds finally stacked too high. Tech companies moved in and priced out the artists. The culture of the place I fell in love with slowly disappeared. When Covid hit in early 2020, all the bars closed and I finally realized my time there was over. So I packed up and left. And yet, like Lot’s wife, I can’t help looking back, the voice in my head taunting me with Springsteen’s ‘Glory Days.’ I loved Seattle. I miss it. Or I guess I miss the memory of it.”

‘A Pillar of Salt’ marks Gundersen’s first full-length release following 2019’s acclaimed ‘Lover’ and features a duet with his good friend Phoebe Bridgers.
