Written in Albuquerque, New Mexico while filming the dystopian themed film, Finch, alongside Tom Hanks, Caleb Landry Jones (who just won Best Actor at Cannes for Nitram) has announced that his new album ‘Gadzooks Vol. 1’ will be out on 24th September via Sacred Bones!
The follow-up to last year’s debut album ‘The Mother Stone’, Caleb says of the record’s origins, “I stole from what was around me, what fell out of the television, what passed below my windows, relationships, old and new. My frustrations, desires, day dreams and fears scattered themselves throughout my writing. It is a direct response to the album before it. I felt whatever I wrote next needed to be more consistent. I knew that I wanted to put everything down on tape. I wanted the same players as before but to go further.”
“The perspectives from which I write, jump erratically and can turn on a dime,” he adds. “Others grow and burn, only to sometimes vanish on the spot, just before the hat drops… My intention is to not rob the listener of their own fantasies by describing the annals of purpose which in turn, only unearth a fragile magic. I am interested only in the album’s response by its audience. The album is there to be digested, not by the front of your brain, but by the back. It is for the lover of labyrinths and quagmires.”
