ALBUM ANNOUNCE // S. Carey ‘Range of Light’ Out April 1st, Listen To “Fire-Scene” Now Via Stereogum




It has been over 3 years since since S. Carey‘s All We Grow was released on Jagjaguwar, and today we announce his new full length album Range of Light will be out April 1st, 2014 (March 31 in UK). The new album, previewed in Spin last week, is his first recorded in a studio, at Justin Vernon’s April Base Studios in Wisconsin, and brings collaboration from Vernon and Sean’s live band saying “I just wanted to include them because these guys are my brothers…some of my best friends.”

The album’s title originally comes from the naturalist John Muir, who founded the environmental organization the Sierra Club and took great care with and had a great appreciation for the California’s Sierra Nevada mountains. On the title and thought process of the album, Carey writes,

“The ‘Range of Light,’ to me, is the range of my own happiness and the range in anyone’s happiness, sadness…it became a very California-inspired record for me. California and Arizona, specifically, because when I was a kid, my parents got divorced, and my dad lived in Arizona. Every summer we would go visit him and explore — basically road-trip around and camp and fish and hike, and do all that stuff in Arizona and in California, because we had a bunch of cousins and aunts and uncles that lived there. Some of the songs are about those memories, which again goes back to the ‘Range of Light.”

Preview the new album by hearing the new track “Fire-Scene” [via Stereogum premiere this morning] above or on our Soundcloud / YouTube pages.

Range of Light is now available for pre-order via iTunes, and comes with an instant-grat download of “Fire-scene.” A pre-order with instant-grat is also available through SC Distribution, in addition to a Range of Light deluxe package, which includes limited-edition marble vinyl and a limited-edition “Fire-scene” 7″, featuring exclusive b-side “Chrysalis.” Others can also find the new album available via Amazon and your local record store.
