Americana Highways is hosting an advance stream of The Fumes, the lush third album by Danish multi-instrumentalist KRISTIAN HARTING. The album will see release this Friday through the artist’s allies at long-running German label Exile On Mainstream.
KRISTIAN HARTING‘s prior solo albums, 2014’s Float and 2015’s Summer Of Crush, were entirely written, recorded, performed, and produced by the artist at his own studio, however, The Fumes marks a somewhat departure from this approach. The album was recorded and produced by HARTING and Lars Lundholm (On Trial, Oresund Space Collective, Hanne Boel, Papir) at Black Tornado Studios and Room 21 in Copenhagen and mastered by Nikolaj Vinten (Coldplay). Additionally, The Fumes features guest musicians, including bass from Jakob Falgren (Trentemøller), keys by Jesper Bo Hansen (Glenn Hughes), drums by Mads Beldring Hansen, and backing vocals by singer/songwriter Nana Schwartzlose.
Writes Americana Highways with their early stream of the album, “With just the right amount of suspense, this Danish outfit achieves a central balance between pop and roots. Listen to The Fumes‘ hypnotic catharsis when you need to find your resolve.”
Hear KRISTIAN HARTING’s The Fumes LP early through Americana Highways at THIS LOCATION.
The Fumes will see release on January 24th, digitally and on LP with CD bundled within. Find preorders at Exile On Mainstream’s webshop RIGHT HERE and see the “Falling” video HERE.
