Schromelijk over het hoofd gezien en dus met exact één maand vertraging toch nog deze 'sounds' over de 'donkere' Zweed die ons betovert met zijn op folk geïnspireerde liedjes. De ene keer neigen ze naar americana, de andere keer hoor je zowaar Simon & Garfunkel pieken. Voor de kenners: jawel, hij is de lead guitarist bij Tribulation. Chants From Another Place is verschene op 13 maart via Kscope.
Luister ook naar: Wasteland
ter info Jonathan Hultén, the darkly enigmatic Swedish Grammy-winning songwriter, following on from the release of his singles and videos for the tracks “The Mountain” and “Wasteland”, has again created an animated lyric video for the song “Where Devils Weep”. Excited to finally be able to present his full album to fans Jonathan comments “Today, ‘Chants From Another Place’ is released. It’s been a ride and I’m so pleased to be able to finally share this with all of you! So let yourself sink into the Other Place, where there is always music in the air. Accompanying the release is a lyric video for ‘Where Devils Weep’. It also serves as an introduction to the 5 characters of the next video that will come later this year: The Devil, Death, The Mourner, The Soul & Hope. Enjoy!” The musical inspiration for singer/songwriter Jonathan Hultén’s debut album Chants From Another Place is drawn from acapella folk and church choir compositions. Throughout the album, tales are weaved and musical influences collide as Hultén draws comparisons to artists including Nick Drake, Sufjan Stevens, Wovenhand and Fleet Foxes, as well as traditional folk artists such as John Martyn right through to his contemporaries in Anna Ternheim, José Gonzales, Anna von Hausswolff Chelsea Wolfe & Hexvessel.
