Peace Chord, the solo project of Crack Cloud member Daniel Robertson, has announced the forthcoming release of his debut album for early next year.
The self-titled album will be released on February 5 through Unheard Of Hope. Coinciding with the album announcement, Robertson has shared the self-directed music video for his single, ‘Empty In This House’. Watch the clip below:
Robertson previously shared the single, ‘Crescent Of Sun’, under the Peace Chord moniker in November. Both tracks exhibit a stark contrast to his work with Crack Cloud, swapping out the collective’s art-punk sound for a less intense, ambient feel.
In a statement on his Bandcamp, Robertson explained how the album was mostly written and recorded in the home he shares with the other members of Crack Cloud.
“In that ramshackle space I found stillness for the first time after three years of oscillation; between harm-reduction work in overdose prevention sites and low-barrier shelters, and tour with Crack Cloud,” he said.
“In the stillness of that space, I was afforded time to reflect on the thoughts and experiences that had gone unseen: Loss of love. The dying of my grandfather. The dying of friends to overdose. Seeing new countries. Bearing witness to celebration and trauma.”
The tracklist for ‘Peace Chord’ is:
1. ‘Seventy Times Seven’
2. ‘Empty In This House’
3. ‘Spectral Processor’
7. ‘Crescent Of Sun’
