We’ve already told you about how great 2023 has been for music, both here and here. And now we’re looking ahead to some of next year’s most anticipated records – including Bob Vylan’s Humble As The Sun.
Following the 5/5-rated The Price Of Life, the duo will be releasing Humble As The Sun on April 5, 2024 via Ghost Theatre. And in the latest print issue of Kerrang! – which is on sale now – frontman Bobby says that they’re taking things to the next level this time around.
“This album is a clear step above everything else that we’ve created,” he explains, as we join him in the studio. “We went into different studios and used different musicians and instruments – I played the organ on one of the tracks and we brought in a woman called Hannah who played keys. There’s all these different instruments and recording techniques that we’ve never used before.
“It’s the first time I’ve worked with another producer – Jonny Breakwell helped me record and produce this album and Laurie Vincent helped produce [lead single] He’s A Man. I think it gives it this really immersive feeling when you listen to it as a whole record, from front to back.”
Intriguingly, he also adds that, “From the very first track, people will wonder if this is a Vylan album. They might think they’ve picked up the wrong thing. Some of the production choices are quite surprising.”
