Los Angeles based singer-songwriter/multi-instrumentalist/producer Jonathan Wilson (Father John Misty, Karen Elson, Conor Oberst), returns with his third solo release. The ambitious “maximalist” album, titled Rare Birds, features contributions from Father John Misty, Lucius, Lana Del Rey, and New Age music legend Laraaji. Although much of the album is comprised lyrically of meditations on a failed relationship and its aftermath, Wilson insists that Rare Birds is not really a concept album. “It’s meant more as a healing affair, a rejuvenation, a reconciliation...” Wilson’s sound takes a synthetic/acoustic, best-of-both-worlds analog/digital hybrid approach to achieve the complexity and glossy hi-fi coating of Rare Birds.
