Dark acoustic singer Amigo The Devil announced his next big release. His sophomore album Born Against, will be out on February 21st, 2021.
The album was recorded at Modern Electric in Dallas, TX with producer Beau Bedford. Amigo The Devil channels Tom Waits, Leonard Cohen and Fiona Apple mixed together with his own unique twist.
“Every new record is an opportunity to sit and think about how much has changed in your life and the world around you. It’s a new opportunity to bring in both new and old influences. I really wanted to dive into ideas that I’d either been avoiding or ignoring within myself and figure out ways to align them with music I grew up listening to. Influences that may have been set aside in our older recordings, like Tom Waits, Fiona Apple, Taraf de Haïdouks and Demis Roussos…the pulse of Leonard Cohen’s stories…the crooning and raw heart of Selda Bagcan…just to name a few. While the record may not sound like these artists directly, I tried to explore their abilities to create these incredible visuals through songs and whether or not it was done successfully. I walked away with a new appreciation and deeper understanding for writing honestly and with purpose.”
The album is available for pre-order here.
