A favorite here at TDC, Sean McConnell recently announced the forthcoming release of Undone due September 8th. The collection is an all acoustic version of last year's eponymous debut for Rounder Records. The original tracks are presented here in the same order, but were recorded live and alone (with just piano and guitar) to analog tape. In addition, the album features a new track, "Nothing On You," a duet written and performed with the supremely talented Lori McKenna.
Sean writes in a mailing list email, "I’ve always been a sucker for an acoustic record. The bare bones, the stories, the chair squeaking, hearing the fingerprints glide across the strings, hearing the sound of the room it was recorded in. A lot of the music I grew up listening to was like that and I’m always drawn to it. It’s like a home base. And because a good chunk of my shows are just a guy and his instrument, I wanted people to be able to go home with a recording that sounded like what they just heard on stage. So I am pleased to announce the forthcoming release of “Undone”, the entire collection of my self titled record in the same order, track for track, recorded live and alone to analog tape. It’s just me and my guitar or piano...just like they were written and just like I perform them most of the year."
It's a stunning collection that presents the songs in a beautiful new light. For more information visit HERE.
