Steve Gunn Unveils New Album 'Other You'

Hear a pair of tracks from his upcoming record

BY Brock ThiessenPublished Jun 29, 2021

Steve Gunn will release a new album this year. Called Other You, the artist's latest will arrive on August 27 via Matador.

The record marks the American songwriter's follow-up to 2019's The Unseen in Between, and it was produced by Rob Schnapf (Beck, Elliott Smith, Kurt Vile). Gunn has also roped in some guests for the album, including Mary Lattimore, Julianna Barwick, Jeff Parker, Bridget St. John, Bill MacKay and Ryan Sawyer.

Speaking of Other You, Gunn explained: "I came up with this title when we were recording vocals and Rob was very into harmonies. There was a third part and I just couldn't find the note. I couldn't vocalize it. He went in and took my voice and put it into his computer program, then he could playback and "sing" the note with my voice using the computer. And he said, 'Sing to the other you.' So I was singing along to myself singing a note I couldn't sing"

For an idea of what that other you sounds like, you can now hear "Other You" below, as well as album cut "Reflection" — both of which have arrived with their own music video.
