Heigh Ho, Heigh ho, it's off to work Blake Mills goes!
Renowned guitarist, songwriter and producer Blake Mills will release his second album, Heigh Ho, on September 16 via Verve Records.
"The goals for Heigh Ho were songs, sonics, and capturing performance," Mills said. "I love my first album and how it sounds, but since making Break Mirrors, I feel like I've heard enough music that seems to be overtly 'lo-fi' or reverb-saturated; so I was interested in finding a combination of sounds that I hadn't heard used together before. I was very fortunate to be able to call on this group of people to help me map some new terrain."
With all that in mind, listen to the new song "Don't Tell Our Friends About Me":
* If I'm Unworthy
* Cry to Laugh
* Just Out of View
* Don't Tell Our Friends About Me
* Gold Coast Sinkin'
* Silence Is Sincerity
* Half Asleep
* Three Weeks in Havana
* Before It Fell
* Shed Your Head
