Leeds dream pop/lo-fi artist Far Caspian (aka Joel Johnston) has announced the release of his new studio album ‘The Last Remaining Light‘.
The 10-track record will be out on July 14 via Johnston’s own label Tiny Library Records. Pre-order it here.
Speaking about it, Far Caspian says: “I started writing for album 2 the day after I handed in the mixes for ‘Ways To Get Out’. I felt exhausted from trying to piece together the first album but when it was done I was inspired to start the next thing and learn from my mistakes. I knew straight away that I wanted to write a 10 track-40 minute album after making a long debut.“
“Throughout the final part of recording and mixing I was listening to alot of The Microphones and Brian Eno. On every trip into the studio I’d listen to ‘Discreet Music’ by Brian Eno. And the experimental nature of Phil Elverum’s music encouraged me to be comfortable in the imperfections. I think with this album I’m starting to become comfortable with myself and my art and I’m looking forward to expanding on the next record.”
Along with the album announcement, Far Caspian has also shared a self-directed video for the album’s title track “The Last Remaining Light“. Watch it now.
