- Daniel Ellsworth + The Great Lakes Releases New Album “Fashion”: Stream
- Nashville-based eclectic synth rock band Daniel Ellsworth + The Great Lakes has released the third studio album “Fashion”, which is the third part of their new project.
Last year, the band made a plan to release a new project consisting of three parts in 2018.
The EP "Chapter One" was released in January as the first part. The second part, the EP "Chapter Two", which was released in April.
The album comprises of 12-track including two EPs. It is their first LP since 2014s "Kid Tiger".
Back in February, tha band told Soundigest about the album in an interview;
"Fashion was actually in the running as a title for our 2014 album Kid Tiger and it seemed like the right name to use this time around. It’s kind of tongue-in-cheek, poking fun at ourselves, and the music industry in general, for trying so painfully hard to be cool. Everything in music and culture – trends, bands, artists, songs – all come and go so quickly right now. You’ve gotta stay on top of your game and make sure your jeans are the right amount of tight and that you’re getting the right amount of Instagram likes so the record labels know you’re good. We’re hoping with calling this record Fashion that we can get our Instagram follower count to shoot through the roof so we are finally respected as musicians.
We recorded the album in chunks over the course of a year, and so the three parts are a reflection of that recording process. We also wanted to experiment and release something in a way that we never have before."
- Daniel Ellsworth + The Great Lakes was formed in 2010 and is composed of Daniel Ellsworth (vocals, keys), Timon Lance (guitar), and Marshall Skinner (bass).
The band released the debut album "Civilized Man" in 2011. Followed by, the second album "Kid Tiger" was released in 2014.
The band will perform at Exit/In in Nashville as the album release party on September 28th, and Rumba in Columbus on September 29th.
