Noah Gundersen returns with Lover. Out on August 23 via Cooking Vinyl

Single and video for first single Robin Williams available now

Acclaimed singer-songwriter Noah Gundersen has announced the release of his extraordinary and highly personal new album. Lover arrives August 23 via Cooking Vinyl. The Seattle-based Gundersen’s fourth full-length solo release, Lover is preceded by the new intimate single Robin Williams, available now. The track is joined by an equally powerful companion visual.

'Death comes for us all, no
matter how talented we are, no matter how much work we make. I had just
finished the Robin Williams documentary when I wrote this and was deeply moved
by his spirit and enormous talent. I had also been reading about the
expansiveness of DMT in Tao Lin’s Trip. Art is both everything and nothing.
Living is the same.'

Recorded over two years at Seattle’s The Crumb studio with longtime collaborator, producer/engineer Andy D. Park (Death Cab For Cutie, K. Flay, Pedro The Lion), LOVER sees Gundersen continuing to veer towards an increasingly intimate and intense creative approach, wedding intricate beats and warm natural instrumentation to a series of stark, almost dreamlike, new songs. Rich with patience and grace, songs like Older and Out of Time reveal a remarkably gifted songwriter-artist in the midst of confrontation with life’s toughest truths, somehow emerging with even greater self-awareness and understanding.

'This record is deeply personal. It’s about love, it’s about failure, it’s about drugs, it’s about sex, it’s about age, it’s about regret, it’s about itself (very meta, I know) and it’s about finding peace. I think it’s the most I’ve ever put of myself into something. It’s been cathartic. I’ve cried a lot.'
