Earlier this month Autre Ne Veut announced the release of a new album, his follow up to 2013’s acclaimed Anxiety. The new release, Age of Transparency, will drop on October 2nd via Downtown Records. The album is being described as “the second step in a trilogy exploring the difficulty of making personal connections in an impersonal time.”
Autre Ne Veut, née Arthur Ashin, says the title itself is a “a term for the place we’re in now, where truth and transparency are just ways to sell things, and honesty is its own kind of performance. Transparency is an impossibility. It’s more about trying to be transparent and falling on your face in the process.”
In addition to providing information about his upcoming album, Autre Ne Veut also released the album’s lead single, “World War Pt.2,” which you can watch the video for here. With the exciting news about new music, Autre Ne Veut also gifted fans with an upcoming tour in support of Age of Transparency. The tour kicks off in October in LA, making just a few stops that month. Philadelphians, fear not, because he’ll be making an appearance here on October 21st at the delightfully intimate Boot & Saddle.
