Harrison Announces New Album
Harrison has announced his new album Birds, Bees, The Clouds & The Trees. Today, the jazz and R&B producer, composer and musician has shared album track “Bump,” featuring Guilty Simpson. Other tracks on the LP, include “Float” with Kadhja Bonet. The full-length drops on April 28 via Last Gang Records. Harrison recently worked on video games (Nintendo Switch’s LOUD). Harrison played every instrument on the piano-centric record, in addition to writing, producing and mixing the album in its entirety. Drawing from his artistic roots, love of old cartoons, and musical influences ranging from instrumental hip-hop to American jazz piano a la Vince Guaraldi and Charlie Brown, the LP is a nostalgic ode to the music Harrison dreamed about making as a kid.
“”Bump” Is a love letter to some of my favorite rappers growing up,” Harrison says. “MED and Guilty have been huge influences on me since I was 16. Understanding their beat choices on producers they worked with was a really helpful growing tool. The instrumental for BUMP was actually originally different. They found the pocket I was looking for on this new joint. I’m floored that they were kind enough to join me on this album. ‘Inthecoupe’ is a reminder to myself to not be so serious all the time. My love for jazz is very deep but I still love making fun dance music. A playful song revolving around a brass synth and a bounce.”
