KEVIN MORBY – ” More Photographs (A Continuum) “

Posted: April 27, 2023 in MUSIC

Kevin Morby has announced “More Photographs (A Continuum)”, which he’s billing as a companion piece to his 2022 album, “This Is a Photograph”. The release is due out May 26th via Dead Oceans. Morby has also shared two new songs, “This Is a Photograph II” and “Five Easy Pieces Revisited,” which are new versions of the original LP’s “This Is a Photograph” and “Five Easy Pieces,” respectively.

“If “This Is a Photograph” is a house that you have been living inside of,” Morby said in a press release, “then “More Photographs” is, perhaps, the same home just experienced differently. As if you, its inhabitant, have taken a tab of something psychedelic and now, suddenly, you’ve replaced your eyeglasses with kaleidoscopes.”

Kevin Morby writes (and records, and imagines) at an almost incomparable clip, and his most recent album, “This Is A Photograph”, studies life, time and mortality through myriad lenses. It’s a dynamic, buoyant record on big, heavy themes, so it only makes sense that Morby found he wasn’t quite done with it on its completion. “More Photographs (A Continuum)” finds new nooks, corners and vantage points. “If This Is A Photograph is a house that you have been living inside of,” says Morby, “then More Photographs is, perhaps, the same home just experienced differently. 

Morby continued, “With every collection of songs, I feel I have to cast them out of me before moving onto the next project, and here I knew that what I had begun with “This Is a Photograph” was not finished. Releasing this collection is me tying a bow on that time and place in my creative life.”

Earlier this year, Morby shared “Music From Montana Story”, his soundtrack contributions for Scott McGehee and David Siegel’s film of the same name starring Haley Lu Richardson and Owen Teague.
