Fans will be happy to hear that Why? has released a new single “One Mississippi” allowfullscreen=”allowfullscreen”> and will be going on tour this spring. This single follows his two previous ones released “This Ole King,” and “Proactive evolution.” The Musician recently released his other two singles and fans anxiously await for each each release. This is all leading up to his release of the sixth album Moh Lhean.” This will be the first fully home-recorded album since the project’s debut back in 2003. The album was made mostly in Yani Wolf’s studio and his brother Josiah was the co-producer.
This album is going to bring back some of the smooth cohesive music that the fans expect from this project, but it will also be evident that a transformation has taken place. This album is a breakup album and there a specific person sung about throughout. It is very evident as it moves from song to song that the breakup theme goes throughout.
The album has a lot of older sounds in it that people will pick up on. You might recognize the music of a synagogue in the 60’s or some reggae. This album will combine an array of emotions for the listener. One moment you will be listening to a familiar sound that you love and the next you will be out discovering a whole new sound, all in the same song.
Fans are going to be thrilled to note that not only is the coming album release only a few weeks away, but Why? also added more dates to their spring tour, meaning that more people will get to enjoy this incredible live music. Be sure to take the time to make a tour date and see it for yourself.
