Washed Out 'Purple Moon' album

Washed Out, will release his new full-length Purple Noon, on August 7th, via Sub Pop. The full-length was produced and recorded by Ernest Greene and mixed by Ben H. Allen in Atlanta, Georgia. “Time to Walk Away” is also the subject of a new video from Australian director Riley Blakeway. The video is a reinterpretation of a personal short film Blakeway shot years ago, now presented in music video form, beautifully (and painfully) telling the story of a relationship crumbling.

For Purple Noon, Greene again wrote, recorded, and produced the entirety of the album, with mixing handled by frequent collaborator Ben H. Allen (Paracosm, Within and Without). Production of the album followed a brief stint of writing for other artists (most notably with Sudan Archives on her debut Athena) which enabled Greene to explore genres like R&B and modern pop for the first time. These brighter, more robust sounds made their way into the songs of Purple Noon and mark a new chapter in Greene creative process.

The coastlines of the Mediterranean inspire Purple Noon, and Greene pays tribute to the region’s distinct island culture — with all of its rugged elegance and old-world charm — and uses it as a backdrop to tell the album’s stories of passion, love, and loss (Purple Noon’s title comes from the 1960 film directed by Rene Clement, which is based on the novel “The Talented Mister Ripley” by Patricia Highsmith).
