Here again, album time. Another collection of mostly new songs, I tried to keep it simple. I tried to avoid the words, soul, love and Heart. Im pretty sure I didn't quiet succeed (except for the soul thing) but I tried and I'll have you know that was for you. I do repeat a phrase or two and struggled with the inclusion of the same phrase in different songs on the same album but then I dug deep and asked myself, "do I really care?"and the answer was NO! repetition IS change.
Not too many deaths on this one except for a dream or two and maybe some hope but most got out unscathed. Except for that guy who cut off his own finger (unfortunate)
Most of the songs I wrote with the help of a lifetime of listening to music and the heavy hand of influence which I've learned to embrace. The rest are my interpretations of old folk songs that have stuck with me over the years (oops theres another dead guy right there).
Brandon Wilde was a dream to work with as usual and Studio 76 in Brooklyn is my favorite place to make music.
Pete Sinjin very generously did the Lino Cuts and I believe seeing them shaped the direction of this album.
Thanks everyone

"Warren Malone has created an absolutely amazing album.“And The Ants Ate The Bee” never sounds the same twice/absolutely spellbinding/each listen feels fresh and different/The album is like a audio kaleidoscope/And then there’s that voice…an entirely unique instrument that sounds like a slightly androgynous soul singer/this album deserves repeated spins."
