“Fan Fiction (Ballad Of A Genius)” Murray A. Lightburn

Hear Me Out is the title of Murray A. Lightburn’s (The Dears) forthcoming release, which comes out on February 22nd, via Dangerbird Records (Swervedriver). Ahead of the release, Lightburn has shared the album track “FAN FICTION (BALLAD OF A GENIUS).”

For Hear Me Out Lightburn brought together a stellar group of musicians to bring his work to life, including jazz guitarist Steve Raegele, bassist Rémi-Jean Leblanc, drummer Jeff Luciani (The Dears), and singers Catherine McCandless (Young Galaxy) and Ariel Engle (La Force/Broken Social Scene).

From Murray A. Lightburn;

“This album is about grown-up stuff.” “Having kids, having to sustain careers and sustain relationships, finding that thing that keeps you together in the midst of other circumstances that could tear you apart. The reason why the album’s called Hear Me Out, is it’s not only about expressing yourself, but listening too. Being able to communicate in a relationship is utterly crucial, if you’re gonna survive anything.”
