2020 has dealt more than its fair shares of blows, so here’s something unexpected: a ‘new’ Jason Molina album.
The material on incoming LP ‘Eight Gates’ was recorded before his death due to complications from alcoholism, and its informed by health struggles and his move to London.
The title is a reference to the city’s historic seven gates – Jason carved out an eighth gate, an entrance to a city that existed only in his imagination.
‘Eight Gates’ will be released on August 7th, featuring a total of nine unheard songs.
‘Shadow Answers The Wall’ is online now, and it’s a powerful, brooding song, one amplified by the uncanny feeling of hearing that voice once more.
Tune in now.
