Sam Evian has announced a new album, Time to Melt, which will be out October 29 via Fat Possum. The album was made at Sam's new Flying Cloud Recordings studio in the Catskills, and inspired by records that mixed the personal and the political, like Marvin Gaye's What's Going On.
Time to Melt includes Sam's "Easy to Love" single from earlier this year, and the new single is the lush, groovy "Knock Knock." “'Knock Knock' is a song of commiseration,” says Sam. “It's a conversation with my sibling, and really anyone else with a conscience. We talk a lot about the small town in Eastern North Carolina where we grew up, and why we left. Growing up we saw a lot of racism, violence, poverty, disparity, ignorance...all of it not so hidden under a veil of southern hospitality and dogmatic beliefs. A year later after George Floyd’s murder, I hope we can keep the conversation going. The veil is lifted for all to see. Knock knock - who's there? A broken America.”
