Keaton Henson is a singer-songwriter who crafts delicate, beautiful melodies in a way that is reminiscent of a folkier Perfume Genius. Compared to the likes of Bon Iver and Jeff Buckley, you can hear quite vividly how Keaton earns such lofty comparisons.
His newest album, "Monument," (preorder here) is slated for release October 23rd and is themed around that most uplifting of topics, death. His single "Husk" deals with aging - and I'm the same age as Keaton, so I understand why his mind is there - but particularly "waking up and realising that you’ve aged. That time, the traitor, has taken from you your best years, the ones where your bones didn’t ache and you could make it through the day without questioning existence." Which is, yep. Feel that.This also must be the year of musicians ("LA, WHO AM I TO LOVE YOU?") releasing poetry collections, as Keaton also is set to release one, "Accident Dancing."
