KEVIN MORBY

Monday 11 November 2024

Kevin Morby writes (and records, and imagines) at an almost incomparable pace, and his most recent album, This Is A Photograph, explores life, time, and mortality through myriad lenses. It’s a dynamic, buoyant record on big, heavy themes, so it only makes sense that Morby found he wasn’t quite done with it upon its completion. More Photographs (A Continuum) finds new nooks, corners, and vantage points. “If This Is A Photograph is a house that you have been living inside of,” says Morby, “then More Photographs is, perhaps, the same home just experienced differently. As if you, its inhabitant, have taken something psychedelic and now, suddenly, you’ve replaced your eyeglasses with kaleidoscopes.”

Kevin Morby will be performing in the Grote Zaal on Monday, November 11, 2024!

Here, Morby returns to his landmark album’s bottomless themes with new wisdom, new imagination, and the winking, looping callbacks that tie his full body of work together in uniquely special ways. “Everything you once thought was familiar,” he continues, “suddenly appears differently, shifting shapes, color, and sonic landscapes.” “Five Easy Pieces Revisited” captures the same moment from Bobby’s point of view; “This Is A Photograph II” takes a similar approach, revisiting its predecessor from a different angle. “Triumph” explores more of the myths and deaths surrounding Memphis, TN, this time inspired by Big Star’s Chris Bell. And “Kingdom Of Hearts” arrives as an origin story to both This Is A Photograph and its new companion.

“With every collection of songs,” says Morby, “I feel I must cast them out of me before moving on to the next project, and here I knew that what I had begun with This Is A Photograph was not finished. Releasing this collection is my tying a bow on that time and place in my creative life.” With a luxurious nine tracks – three re-imaginings and six brand new songs – More Photographs (A Continuum) is a prequel, sequel, and primer to an already rich and generous record from one of our most luminous modern songwriters.
