JESSE MALIN – ” The Fine Art of Self Destruction ” Expanded 20th Anniversary Reissue

Posted: November 6, 2022 in MUSIC

Jesse Malin has announced plans to reissue his celebrated 2003 debut, “The Fine Art of Self Destruction”. To commemorate the 20th anniversary of the acclaimed release, the artist has shared details about the impending material that will be released on February 17th via MNRK Heavy

According to a press release, the rocker will present his fan with the opportunity to snatch his inaugural album, which has been reimagined and re-recorded by Malin and his long-time band. The bonus album was produced by Geoff Sanoff, whose past work includes Malin’s “Sunset Kids” (2019) and “Sad and Beautiful World” (2021). 

Along with today’s announcement, Malin has also shared a revitalized rendition of “Brooklyn,” now slated as “Brooklyn (Walt Whitman in the Trash).” Directed by Catherine Popper and Vivian Wang, the video sets out to honor the bones of old New York. 

Malin also added a statement on the new video: “‘Brooklyn’ is about beginnings, those early days of innocence and big dreams that often collide with irreversible mistakes and regret. We try and find ways to accept the mistakes and look back with laughter, forgiveness, and love.” 

The artist also dug into the song writing process behind the initial album. He stated: “[At the time] I was still learning how to sing and tell stories. These songs were written in a little apartment downtown, without a record deal, a manager, or any expectations of anything coming of it–just a need to write them.”
