Henry Green Returns With Two Hypnotic New Productions "Shift" And "Without You"

Henry Green Returns With Two Hypnotic New Productions "Shift" And "Without You"

February 07, 2018

Last month, we brought you news of emerging Bristol producer and singer/songwriter Henry Green was about to release Shift a new album of productions inspired by the likes of Four Tet and Gold Panda (due March 30 via Akira Records).

That news came with lead track "Another Light", and now he's teased out two more tracks: "Shift" and "Without You". The former is a sort of laid-back R&B jam that shows off his gentle vocals perfectly. The latter, continues that vibe but varies up the tone a little as Green's vocals get even more delicate and ethereal.

"We're constantly moving in some manner, at some pace..." he explained, "whether it's physically or emotionally. This year was all about progression and change for me, so I found myself constantly gravitating towards that idea of movement in my lyrics. 'Shift' was a word that just kept reappearing when writing the tracks, whether I was describing the structures of the tracks, the instrumentation/arrangement and obviously, the lyrics. I wanted to exhibit a feeling of constant movement in the album and that idea that every element is constantly shifting, but at a variety of paces."
