Joe Henry Preps Deeply Personal New Album ‘All The Eye Can See’ & Shares Title Track
Watch the lyric video for "All The Eye Can See."
The 14-track All The Eye Can See follows Henry’s 2019 release, The Gospel According To Water. Henry detailed the new album, which he largely self-recorded during the pandemic.
“I assumed as I began this process that, owing to circumstances, I would be making the most skeletal album of my career; when in fact, I have in many ways made my most expansive record to date.”
On All The Eye Can See, Henry is joined by over 20 musicians including longtime collaborators like his son Levon Henry on saxophone/clarinet as well as David Piltch on bass, Patrick Warren on keyboards and John Smith on acoustic guitar.
The singer-songwriter also noted that the material on All The Eye Can See is of a deeply personal nature:
“As for the songs themselves, I hear them in part as springing out of our shared and traumatic experiences of the recent past, sure, as well as our present-day responses to them; but if I am honest, I know that I have never allowed myself to write and release songs as personal as these now feel to me.”
