Strand Of Oaks (Timothy Showalter) will release a new studio album “In Heaven” due on October 1st. The album features the lead track and single, “Galacticana.”

Showalter recorded In Heaven in October 2020 at Invisible Creature in Los Angeles with producer Kevin Ratterman, who also produced 2019’s Eraserland. The sessions followed Showalter’s relocating from Philadelphia to Austin, Texas and the unexpected deaths of Showalter’s wife Sue’s mother in a car accident and the couples’ beloved cat Stan.

Showalter played guitar and, for the first time since 2014’s Heal, synthesizers. My Morning Jacket guitarist Carl Bromel and keyboardist Bo Koster, who contributed to Eraserland, were brought back for the In Heaven sessions. Ratterman played drums alongside bassist Cedric LeMoyne. Violinist Scott Moore appears on the new album and special guest James Iha (The Smashing Pumpkins) added guitar and vocals to the track “Easter.”

I am beyond thrilled to announce my newest record In Heaven. Hard to put into words how much these songs mean to me and the love that went into creating them. Over this tough year or so this Oaks community has brought me endless strength and made me feel less alone. The first single Galacticana is for all of you, it’s my love letter to all of us. Please do me a favour and if you like this band/song share this with your friends. You can pre order and listen at our website. Let me know what you think in the comments, as always I’d love to hear from you! You all mean the world to me, Best tim

“In Heaven” was created with so much love and my greatest hope is that it connects with people and provides a momentary space for reflection, joy, catharsis and whatever else someone might be looking for in their life,” Showalter stated. “Music is magic and I feel like the luckiest person in the world that I’m allowed to share it.”

Strand Of Oaks will tour the U.S. in support of In Heaven throughout October and November.
