WHY ARE YOU OK – OUT NOW!
Beginning with their first LP “Everything All The Time’’, Band of Horses have been a mainstay of indie rock for a decade with 4 studio albums in total, including 2010’s Grammy-nominated “Infinite Arms” and “Mirage Rock”, produced by the legendary Glyn Johns.
Formed and led by singer and songwriter Ben Bridwell, the South Carolina-based band have given us many much-loved singles, including “The Funeral” and “No One’s Gonna Love You”, and have played globe-spanning headline tours as well as dates with greats like Pearl Jam and Neil Young.
Band of Horses have recently released their highly-acclaimed fifth studio album, “Why Are You OK”, co-produced by the band and Jason Lytle and executive produced by Rick Rubin.
“There’s something about this record and us taking more control of how we went about it. I really wanted to know the stories a bit better; I wasn’t under pressure to hurry up. I didn’t want to start getting too clever for fear of exposing myself. I expose myself all over this album. Sometimes you can try to get too clever or write a whole song about absolute drivel because you were afraid to make it into a more real thing. I guess I made an effort to be less of a coward. Jason Lytle helped me every step of the way. The band supported me in my quest for different sounding feelings even when it didn’t include them. I’m still so child like with it, without any real experience to go behind any instruments besides some guitar, so it’s always a real childlike experience. I can’t get too methodical with any of it. I’m so fucking proud and pleased that I’ve been able to have a life in music at all, I don’t discredit any of it.”
