Earlier this week, the venerable Velvet Blue Music — aka, the best indie label you’ve probably never heard of — announced that they’ll be releasing a new album from Luxury frontman (and Orthodox priest) Lee Bozeman. From the official announcement:
During all this time Bozeman has recorded and performed under different monikers outside of Luxury. This year, we find him recording what may be his first proper solo release, going simply by Lee Bozeman. Recording will take place this February in Austin at Test Tube Audio. Joining him for production will be Taylor Muse (of Quiet Company) and engineer Kevin Butler.
Label owner Jeff Cloud states, “I’ve been a fan for so long. Having the opportunity to work with Lee recording new music, in a proper studio, and with total artistic freedom is going to be amazing. It’s a check off my bucket list.”
Lee tells us that, “As always, there is hope that these new songs will be a fresh approach to the old themes of long-term relationships, the majesty of the body, belief or unbelief, and the current mood of our country in light of our political realities. There are references to pieces of literature and art, public speeches, and common nostalgia.”
As for Luxury, works continues on the band documentary, which is being created by guitarist Matt Hinton. As for Trophies, the band’s most recent album (and quite possibly their best album), it will be properly released around the time Hinton’s documentary is released.
