“It felt like it was necessary to rouse people — rouse their love, their kindness, their anger, rouse anything in them.”
Bill Callahan is releasing a new album, called Ytilaer, via Drag City this October.
Callahan notes that the album, which is one hour long, is designed to be listened to in a single sitting.
“I wanted to make a record that addressed or reflected the current climate. It felt like it was necessary to rouse people — rouse their love, their kindness, their anger, rouse anything in them,” he shares.
“We needed a better anger. To get out of this hypnagogic state.”
