‘Hidden Music’, new album by Dan Ecclestone
Dan Ecclestone’s solo album, Hidden Music, is out now. Recorded by Sam Inglis, mixed by Minutes to Midnight, mastered by Ian Shepherd.
A vocals-driven delicate and powerful 6-songs album, Hidden Music is another brilliant collaboration with Dan, after the co-productions with Ember Rev’s latest albums.
I realised these six songs worked together both lyrically and musically after three albums with Ember Rev but these songs were conceived at and for the piano and wouldn’t work if reconfigured for different instruments. Also, I had little desire to perform live such intensely personal downtempo ruminations on family, fatherhood, status anxiety and the memory of ambition. So it became this: a solo album of music for headphones, music for contemplation, music that is, and has been for many years, hidden.
