C DUNCAN RELEASES ALBUM TITLE-TRACK ‘HEALTH’
THE FULL ALBUM IS OUT MARCH 29TH VIA FATCAT RECORDS
Set for release via FatCat Records on March 29th, C Duncan’s highly anticipated third album sees the Scottish multi-instrumentalist ditch his bedroom studio and work with other producers, engineers and musicians for the first time.
Warm and harmonically rich, Duncan delightfully juxtaposes the vibrant and wholesome aesthetic of the album with an often-darker lyrical undertone, pushing himself to refine and explore new ways of writing. As the sole protagonist of his self-carved niche, ‘Health’ sees Duncan evolve and expand its parameters in mesmerising fashion. The album’s first single ‘Impossible’ was released last month, it’s rhythmic art-funk created using strings and oddball psychedelic sounds.
Next up, the album’s title-track documents the end of a previous relationship, it’s syncopated piano rhythm and brooding vocal harmonies reminiscent of the ‘The Midnight Sun’s’ soothing aural beauty.
Duncan had this to say on it: “The track is about the end of a previous relationship. It was intense but I couldn’t hold onto it, and we started to drift apart. This had a huge impact on both our mental health and the only way to remedy this was to go our separate ways. It was an extremely painful breakup as up until then we shared everything, but one that was necessary to get us both back on track.”
As always Duncan has contributed all the artwork surrounding the release, and the
