After several years working on his album, Seattle based songwriter, producer and composer Jherek Bischoff is set to release his debut solo album entitled Composed.
The nine orchestral pieces in Composed feature an array of illustrious guests.
“This record is the most exciting project I have ever worked on due largely to the amazing collaborators I have had the chance to work with” said Jherek Bischoff about his forthcoming album. “If you told me 5 years ago that I would be composing orchestral music and collaborating with my heroes I would have thought you were nuts!”
David Byrne, Zac Pennington (Parenthetical Girls), Greg Saunier (Deerhoof), Soko, Caetano Veloso, Mirah, Carla Bozulich (Evangelista, Geraldine Fibbers), Craig Wedren (Shudder To Think), Dawn McCarthy and Nels Cline (Wilco) are some of the heroes he’s referring to.
Ahead of it, and to celebrate Record Store Day, the first cut from the album, ‘Young & Lovely’, will hit stores tomorrow as a limited edition 7″ single. ‘Young & Lovely’ features Zac Pennington and French singer/actor Soko and you can grab it free on Jherek’s bandcamp. ‘Eyes’ is the second collaborative track on the 7″ featuring David Byrne.
You can preview these two majestic cuts below. And check out the teaser trailer for Composed.
