Following the release of Ernest Greene aka Washed Out’s first track in nearly four years the artist has now announced the release of his third LP entitled Mister Mellow.
“Boredom. Laziness. Complete apathy.
Is it a quarter-life crisis or just an excuse to never grow up?“
Asks the album’s press release.
Of which Greene pens the following response, one the album, in a culmination of psych-rock, jazz, pop, and reportedly even a little bit of hip-hop is to explore.
“In classic Millennial fashion, most young adults’ perception of their own lives are overblown and over-dramatized to the point of absurdity — as are the many ways they distract themselves from the insecurities faced on a daily basis (see social media, fantasy, drugs, music). Mister Mellow shines a light on the humor found in this paradox —
How we can be so bored and unhappy in what is often a very privileged, contented life?”
Mister Mellow is out June 30th via Stone Throw Records, the first release on the new label for Greene, and one we’re certainly excited to see pan out.
