PRESS RELEASE: OUT NOW: New William Brittelle & Jordan Munson
Additionally, Brittelle's next album, Spiritual America, will see its West Coast premiere at Los Angeles's Hollywood Bowl on Sunday, Aug. 5 as part of an evening also featuring a collaboration between Bon Iver and contemporary dance company TU Dance. Spiritual America will be performed by an eight-piece chamber ensemble including indie rock duo Wye Oak, who contribute vocals and percussion throughout, and members of the Grammy-nominated and NYC-based orchestra Metropolis Ensemble. Information and tickets available here.
The work was also recently featured by The Nation's David Hajdu, who wrote: "William Brittelle has drawn from classical music, punk rock, and electronica to produce music that is at once free-ranging and a thrill to experience." It will be released in early 2019 on New Amsterdam featuring Wye Oak, the full Metropolis Ensemble orchestra, and Brooklyn Youth Chorus.
