Griffin House is out on tour to sell his new exceptionally anticipated album Rising Star. He is delighted to be journeying to Minneapolis this week at the Cedar Cultural Center on May 2. I had a threat to discuss his task and the upcoming documentary film about his track career.
MIM: So, your new album Rising Star is coming out quickly. Tell me approximately that adventure. It has a first-rate variety of favor. How did that turn out to be the identify? GH: The first identity changed into “Imaginary Friend.” I became pretty sure I changed into going to go together with that, however when we had the concept to do a video of me dressed in drag for “Natural Man.” We shot the video; however, it’s now not out but. So, the quilt
became then going to be me in drag with the album name Natural Man. Although I favored most of these ideas, something modified after re-recording the song “Rising Star.” It’s simply an acoustic model from my kitchen, and it opens the whole album. That sort of pressure to me to re-order the complete album, and it merely felt exclusive after that, and the Natural Man title with the drag picture didn’t experience quite right anymore.
We had this lovely photo of a merry cross round at night all through Christmas time in my fatherland of Springfield, Ohio, that we picked for the album cowl. Rising Star is simply regarded to be in shape higher with the image and now the outlet music. Rising Star is likewise the name of the film/track documentary we simply made also to be out this 12 months.
