Following the recent release of lead single, “Bird On The Buffalo,” Angus Stone announces full details of his upcoming solo album Broken Brights – out July 17th on Nettwerk Records.[youtube Yple4rnO8B8 nolink]
Broken Brights marks a departure for Stone, and not just from recording with his long-term musical co-conspirator and sister, Julia. The album, produced by Angus, is also proof that he can deftly shift between genres without compromising his signature sound.
While title track “Broken Brights” is a return-to-form for Stone – it’s a nostalgic, dreamy tribute to our youth – “Bird On the Buffalo” is a livelier composition, incorporating distorted guitar riffs, which also make an appearance in the notably rockier “It Was Blue.” That string-laden track in particular is proof that his compositional skills transcend the preconceptions you might have about his musical style.
