Bruce Hornsby - Non-Secure Connection CD
The 10-track studio effort features guest appearances from artists including James Mercer (The Shins), Justin Vernon and Wayne Pooley (Bon Iver), Jamila Woods, Vernon Reid, and even a posthumous cameo from the late Leon Russell.
"The new album's chromaticism and dissonance quotient is exactly twice as high (three songs featuring that language compared to one and a half on the last record)," Hornsby added in a statement about his forthcoming album with Wednesday's announcement. "I feel like my music has never been a part of any trend that defined any era of music during my 34 years of doing this. I may be wrong, but that's how it feels to me."
While most of the songs to be featured on Non-Secure Connection are new, some were unearthed from previous sessions for the release. "Anything Can Happen", for example, was written and tracked as a demo by Hornsby alongside Leon Russell 25 years ago.
