In 2010, Sean Carey, under the moniker S. Carey, branched out from underneath the canopy of Bon Iver, and we saw what the singer-songwriter could do when separated from the Justin Vernon-led project. Now, after a pair of studio records and another duo of EPs, he’s getting ready to release “Hundred Acres”, which, per a press release, “finds Carey at his most confident, mature and grounded, writing the strongest songs of his career.” With the album, he seeks to communicate the beauty of simplicity while delving into the poetry of healing personal wounds.

The lead single “Fool’s Gold” showcases a piece of those reflections and gives us a taste of what we can expect from the rest of the album. The track sees Carey’s soothing vocals front and center, over a foundation of acoustic guitar strums decorated with ethereal keys and lilting slide. Carey explains in a press release, “This song is what started the whole record … everything came out of it and the vibe it created.”

Hundred Acres, out February. 23rd via Jagjaguwar, was self-produced by Carey, with engineering and co-production from Zach Hanson and Chris Messina, and boasts music contributions from Gordi, who sings backing vocals on three tracks, Casey Foubert (Sufjan Stevens) and Rob Moose (yMusic) Carey will set out on a tour supporting the album next spring—
