Cory Hanson is doing double duty these days. He’s alternating between tour dates with his psychedelic rock band Wand and supporting his new solo album, The Unborn Capitalist From Limbo. This week he put some heft behind the latter by sharing a flowery new video for album track “Garden of Delight”. KEXP also posted an in-studio session Hanson he did earlier this year. You can check out both videos below.
The Unborn Capitalist From Limbo was released in November on Drag City. The record takes a pastoral path, showcasing Hanson’s incredible falsetto range and songwriting skills. It also features sublime string arrangements by Heather Lockie. If you haven’t yet picked a copy, you should do so now. It’s available at Drag City, Amazon, and iTunes.
As for the video for “Garden of Delight”, it’s directed by Elise Tyler, whose other credits include the videos for Kevin Morby’s “Parade” and William Tyler’s “The Sleeping Prophet”. Wand bandmate Evan Burrows served as editor.
Hanson visited KEXP’s studios with Heather Lockie in tow on February 7, 2017. In the video below, you’ll find him performing album tracks “The Unborn Capitalist From Limbo”, “Replica”, “Evening Glass”, and the magical “Ordinary People”.
Wand are about to head to Europe. Before they do, Hanson will be performing at a benefit in Los Angeles. You can find all dates below.
