Leland Whitty x Glass Moon

Leland Whitty of BADBADNOTGOOD shares “Glass Moon,” the second offering from his forthcoming debut solo album Anyhow due December 9th. Arriving with visuals directed by Raven Shields and Colin Medley, the cinematic jazz number magnifies Whitty’s sonic journey and further showcases his multidimensional talent as a performer, composer, and director. The new single follows “Awake,” which Glide Magazine described as having “unforgettable melodies and masterful song structure” and has been celebrated by BBC Radio 1's Benji B, BBC Radio 6's Mary Anne Hobbs, Tom Ravenscroft and Gilles Peterson, and Totally Wired's Kev Beadle. 

The 7 tracks of Anyhow use Whitty's do-it-yourself approach to composition, production and multi-instrumental performances, which include guitar, synthesizer, woodwinds, and strings, to create a narrative found in jazz improvisations that draw from photographic or cinematic sources rather than a specific story. BADBADNOTGOOD’s Alex and Chester were guests on the album, alongside other friends and notably Whitty’s older brother, Lowell – which Whitty credits as being a central musical inspiration in his life. This is the first time they had the chance to fully work together. Whitty built the album from small excerpts rather than a more rigid intellectual compositional technique. He would envision the whole scope of a song, asking friends to contribute shifting the rhythm and energy of each track.

Listen to "Glass Moon" and pre-order/save Anyhow.
