A massive amount of time, work, creativity, and passion goes into creating a record. That’s why it’s a super exciting time to be in Current Swell, as their highly anticipated sixth album When to Talk and When to Listen drops this Friday.
Today AMBY is pleased to premiere the eleven-track innovational experience a day ahead of its official release. With heart-wrenching songs like It Ain’t Right to the upliftingly candid You Got It Easy, When to Talk and When to Listen runs the emotional gamut and serves as an entrancing showing that fuses bluesy nuances with blistering rock anthems.
While creating the album, the foursome worked with Grammy-winning producer Jacquire King (Kings of Leon, Tom Waits, James Bay) over the course of four weeks between Nashville and Vancouver. When asked about the record, guitarist Dave Lang shared with us;
“We wrote this album for a good part of a year, and were so stoked to work with Jacquire King in Nashville and Vancouver and record the album in just under a month. We learned a lot working on this record, from Scott and I writing and pushing each others craft with songs like “ It Ain’t Right”, “ You Got It Easy”, “Marsha” and title track “When to Talk and When To Listen”…. to actually tracking in Blackbird studios and the Warehouse in Vancouver, with Jacquire and his team. Our writing partnership was strengthened and the band got nicely seasoned by working in that Nashville environment… it took a lot of focus.”
