SOUL ASYLUM – Hurry Up and Wait – 2LP+7″ – Limited 180g Vinyl [RSD2020-OCT24]
Double 180 Gram Vinyl with Bonus 7″.
The new album! – According to vocalist/guitarist Dave Pirner, making Soul Asylum’s twelfth studio full-length, Hurry Up And Wait, was a completely seamless, enjoyable and productive experience. Co- produced with John Fields – and recorded at Minneapolis’ Nicollet Studios, the same place where the celebrated rock band recorded seminal early albums released on Twin / Tone Records – the album reflects Soul Asylum’s usual eclectic approach. Lyrically, the songs dive into topics such as grappling with emotional and geographic disconnection, navigating romantic ebbs and flows, and the power of embracing optimism despite it all. Sonically, Hurry Up And Wait features thrashing songs indebted to punk (Hopped Up Feelin’) and classic rock (Got It Pretty Good), folk-influenced pop-rock (Silly Things), and gorgeous janglepop (lead single If I Told You).
