LP released: Jun 02, 2023
SONGS PEOPLE TOGETHER (CLEAR VINYL)
Following his gorgeous collaborative single with Ian Isiah, "Fiction," and his most recent singles "Swim On" and "Seconds ft. Coco O.," internationally acclaimed Danish pianist and producer, August Rosenbaum, shares his highly collaborative Songs People Together LP vis Escho, featuring Ian Isiah, Kool Keith, Moses Boys, and more. At 34 years old, August’s acclaimed career as a multifaceted artist melds the cinematic and classic. His talents as a writer range from crafting timeless pop songs including collaborating and recording with some of today's most exciting and established musicians, Kendrick Lamar, Dijon, Dev Hynes, Kindness, and more; to composing numerous scores for film, TV and art installations, and recently co-wrote a ballet score with Sonic Youth’s Kim Gordon for the Brooklyn Academy of Music. He also regularly collaborates with leading visual artist Jesper Just on exhibitions for a.o. Palais De Tokyo and the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Songs People Together is expansive, with elements of RnB, pop, soul – all filtered through August's unique experimental lens. The record as a whole is a world unto itself, with the production often booming but always crystal clear. It's immersive and haunting sonically, wrapping you up in the main thesis of the album, which is that connecting with each other is the main goal of any kind of music, no matter who you are or what it sounds like. The voices on the record (including August's own for the first time) give us different perspectives within this one landscape.
