Dan Bodan announces debut album ‘Soft’ for DFA; shares new song Soft As Rain

Canadian-born, Berlin-based Dan Bodan, crafter of the most skewed of pop songs, drops his debut album in October.

Dan Bodan announces debut album, 'Soft', for DFA Records, with artwork by Juliien Ceccaldi.

Canadian-born, Berlin-based singer-songwriter-producer Dan Bodan is following up his previous singles and EPs for DFA with his debut album, 'Soft'.

As album titles go, 'Soft' is a good one - it has a weird quality to it that fits neatly with Bodan's uneven pop music. Listening to new song Soft As Rain (a weirdo, smooth soul song that a press release describes as being "about sex, cleansing, and finding new love"), the title seems almost onomatopoeic.

Another fun thing about Soft As Rain is that it has a cast of collaborators that reads like the liner notes of an old school recording session: written and performed by Bodan, produced by Great Skin, additional production from Ville Haimala and Physical Therapy, etc. The full list of credits are up on Soundcloud - expect the whole album to be a family affair.

Otherwise, 'Soft' features some of Bodan's earlier sounds, including his excellent single Anonymous, and the album art was designed by Julien Ceccaldi.
