Acclaimed singer/songwriting guitarist and producer Eric Krasno unveiled “Silence,” the latest single from his upcoming Always solo album as well as a video for the song. The 10-track follow-up to 2019’s Telescope is now scheduled for release through Mascot Label Group on February 4, 2022.

The Grammy-winning Soulive and Lettuce co-founder recorded Always virtually at first before heading into the Bay Area’s Hyde Street Studios to complete the album with co-producer Otis McDonald. Krasno reflects on the importance of family on Always. “Before 2020, I was having a good time, but I wasn’t grounded at all,” Eric stated in a press release. “I was going from gig to gig. I was always running around without a purpose. During the last year, I found my people in terms of my wife and son. I’ve created a family who will always be there for me. That’s what the album is about.”

“‘Silence’ is a song I wrote a number of years ago about the torture of not knowing” Eric explained of his new single. “I sing about how the silent treatment can make your mind spiral into the darkest place where you assume the worst situation is inevitable. This was the first track I worked on with Otis McDonald for the album. The original track I sent him had just acoustic guitar, piano, and vocals. As we built the track, I think it set the tone and feel for the album as a whole.”

Krasno tapped Cale Potts to direct and Jason Kaplan to film the video for “Silence,” the track that opens Always. Watch the final product below:
