Plini has announced that his new album Impulse Voices will release on November 27th. The first single from the album “I’ll Tell You Someday” was also released and you can find it below. You can pre-order the album here.
Plini‘s new album was co-produced by Simon Grove, who also handled the bass. Chris Allison performed drums on the record as well. Dave Mackay appears on piano and synthesizer with John Waugh on saxophone, Amy Turk on electro-acoustic harp, and other production was handled by Devesh Dayal & Aleksandra Djelmash.
Plini offered the following on the release:
“The early demos for these songs range from a few months to a few years old, but the majority of the work that went into the album was during the first half of this year. With all travel plans cancelled until further notice, I slowed my lifestyle way down and spent almost every day from March til August wandering around Sydney, listening to podcasts and music, and then coming home and chipping away at these songs.
“It was an extremely fun, rewarding and explorative process – the closest I’ve felt to the free-spiritedness I had when I first started writing music (way before ever releasing it), but informed by everything I’ve learnt and experienced in the last few years of tours and travel.
To make an analogy, I feel like I designed a pretty cool house for the listener to inhabit with these songs, but it was made truly special by the masterfully-crafted furnishings and decorations added by Chris, Simon and the rest of the musicians involved.”
Regarding the new single, he said:
“I picked this as the first ‘single’ because I wanted to provide the listener with a big, warm, instrumental hug, in a time when I feel everyone could use one. I think it gives a friendly first impression of the album, in terms of sound and energy, though may also provide a false sense of security for some of the stranger territory the rest of the album ventures into…”
