ALBUM RELEASE // S. Carey ‘Range of Light’ Out Now Worldwide, Records Solo Session for The Current, Expands North American + European Tour

It has been over 3 years since since we released S. Carey‘s All We Grow and today his new album Range of Light is out worldwide. The new album was recorded at friend and Bon Iver band mate Justin Vernon‘s April Base Studios in Wisconsin. On the collaborations from Vernon and Sean’s live band, Sean said “I just wanted to include them because these guys are my brothers…some of my best friends.”

Sean stopped by The Current and recorded a piano-only solo session and discussed his new album. Watch him perform “Fire-Scene”, “Alpenglow”, and also “In the Stream” from his last album All We Grow. Stream the audio from The Current and watch S. Carey‘s performance of “Alpenglow” above.

Range of Light is available now via iTunes, SC Distribution, Amazon, and your local record store.

Critics praise the new album:

“An indie-folk pastorale full of keen musical detail, never more striking than on ‘Crown The Pines’, with its post-minimalist rhythmic scaffolding”

- The New York Times

“It’s crisper and glistens with ambient atmosphere and mellow beats.”

- NME

“Range of Light continues to showcase the Wisconsin native’s singer-songwriter prowess.”

- AV Club

If the West Coast is indeed the best coast, then things just got a lot sweeter for our neighbors to the left. Luckily for those of us in Bloomington, the benefits of having S. Carey on Jagjaguwar means a stop in the Midwest.

When Sean Carey last played California while on tour with The Tallest Man on Earth, they performed a magnificently cozy session with Yours Truly. Check it.

Mark those fresh 2011 calendars for your first anticipated summer tour!

Watch S. Carey’s “In the Dirt” Video, Tour Dates W/ Yann Tiersen


In the Dirt by S. Carey from Secretly Jag on Vimeo.

With no signs of winter coming to an end, we often forget the simple joy that snow once brought us as children. The S. Carey team received a video from two brothers. Axel Byrfors and Nils Byrfors, who made a video for “In the Dirt,” recruiting their own children on a journey lasting until sunrise in Malmo, Sweden.

Sean Carey tells Spin, who premiered the video on Friday:

The song is an anthem about staying together with a person for your whole life…Me and my wife want to have kids at some point. And to see these kids interacting the way they were, and just to see how beautiful children can be, combined with my desire to have kids — I just loved it.

S. Carey and his touring band continue to travel the country, soon opening for French virtuoso Yann Tiersen, who is perhaps best known stateside for his contributions on the Amelie and Goodbye Lenin! soundtracks.

Check ‘em out, after the jump!
