artists / Christopher Owens
The highly anticipated solo debut from singer, songwriter and former Girls frontman Christopher Owens has been confirmed for a January 15th 2013 release. Lysandre will be released in the US on Mississippi-based independent label Fat Possum and on Turnstile for ROW.
Named for a girl he met whilst in France for a festival performance, Lysandre – written, recorded and sequenced as a complete narrative – was inspired by the events of Girls’ first ever tour in the summer of 2008. Owens describes the record as: “A coming of age story, a road trip story, a love story.”
The San Francisco-based musician goes on to explain, “Lysandre could easily be mistaken as an album about a love affair. But it’s much more than that.” Written almost entirely in one creative outpouring and recorded with former Girls producer Doug Boehm, Lysandre follows Owens from San Francisco – where he’s filled with excitement after writing his band’s Album – to New York City and on to the French Riviera – where he falls in love with the record’s namesake – before a melancholy return home and a beautifully articulated epilogue.
