Andrew Hung Announces Brand New Album “Deliverance” due 11th August via Lex Records & Shares New Single “Ocean Mouth”

Andrew Hung announces his new album, Deliverance, out August 11th on Lex Records, and presents its lead single/video, “Ocean Mouth.”

Known for his collaborative projects with Fuck Buttons — with whom Hung performed headline slots at festivals such as GlastonburyGreen Man, and All Tomorrow’s Parties, and whose music soundtracked key moments in the 2012 London Olympics opening ceremony — Hung continued his collaborative streak through writing and producing with Beth Orton on her career redefining album, Kidsticks. He’s also collaborated with Aimée Osbourne on her debut album, Vacare Adamaré(released under the name ARO). In addition, Hung has worked with cult director Jim Hosking to soundtrack his films The Greasy Strangler(winning best comedy at the Empire Awards), An Evening with Beverly Luff Lin, and Hosking’s Adult Swim series Tropical Cop Tales. Following countless years of fruitful collaboration, Hung now turns his attention to delivering his own expression.

Lex Records describes the new record, Deliverance follows Hung’s 2021 album, Devastations. On Deliverance, Hung continues his punk ethos by writing, performing, producing and mixing the album himself. He also painted the self-portrait that adorns the cover of the album; his face staring back at you amongst a maelstrom of burning light and whispering shadows. Water, dreams, and love are recurring themes throughout the album, with hope as the central tenet acting as a thread weaving everything together. The songs’ subject matter spans conflict, change, and isolation, with Hung stating, “I’ve never really felt part of any particular tribe, yet I know it exists because belonging is a deeply ingrained need. The name of the album Deliverance alludes to this; I have finally found my tribe and I am finally delivered.

Alongside news of the release, Andrew Hung shares lead single “Ocean Mouth” and has shared a video to accompany the track, watch below.

The looping notes that build, resonate and shift, the initial pattern brings this hypnotic entity to the consuming release. Whilst the synth notes travel, alter and distinguish themselves as unpredictable yet essential, the solid drum beat and cutting low-end shape the expressive ensemble.

Hung’s emotive vocal notes channel affection into the soaring, sonically touching composition. The range of poignant harmonies that flutter throughout the journey, the range adds this stirring emphasis, a range that proudly showcases the personal power of this voyage. Fluctuating with fierce inclinations or softer falsetto, the listener can easily connect to this deeply captivating release, fearlessly attaining this explosive emotion, perfectly delivering volatility in all its uncompromised glory.

The track leads to a cathartic elevation and engrossing synth textures that play out the final few notes before the hypnotic loop that commenced the track comes back and plays full circle. This really is a journey in all senses, it leaves this impact, and it alters the listener.
