PATRICK WATSON - Better In The Shade - LP - Vinyl



LP - 140g Black Vinyl. With Printed Inner with credits and lyrics.

This new recording appears after a prolific last couple of years - despite the worldwide pandemic - where Patrick released multiple songs (A Mermaid in Lisbon, Que reste-t'il de nos amours, Lost with You) following-up his previous award-winning album, Wave, released in 2019. 

In Patrick’s words, "This album is about negotiating a world where you don’t know what’s real anymore. I really spent a lot of time reading to improve my lyrics for this record. I was very inspired by Jesus’ Son by Denis Johnson, The Waves by Virginia Woolf and Fever Dream by Samanta Schweblin. The lyrics are a collection of little thoughts that were pacing in my head. We worked hard on rebuilding the tones of our arrangements and we brought a bigger electronic component to the music. With the addition of modular synths, we were able to find a warmer and more touching approach to the electronics, that feel as acoustic as the rest of the instruments and move like liquid. Basically, I went back to school for the last two years to be able to bring something new ha-ha. Andrew Barr from the Barr Brothers joined us on drums for this record, it’s a pleasure to play music with such a great musician. "
