Christopher Owens announces new album, ‘A New Testament’

10.07.14

Following on from 'Lysandre', his debut solo album released early last year, former Girls frontman Christopher Owens is releasing a new album, 'A New Testament', in September.

'A New Testament' was made with a bunch of collaborators, including John Anderson, Darren Weiss, and Danny Eisenberg – all of them played with Owens in Girls. 

"It's a testament to honest, earnest, simple songwriting – 'three chords and the truth'," Owens says of the album in a press release, which also describes the influence of gospel, country, and R&B: "The fundamentals of American music," as he describes them.

He's also shared a new video for lead single Nothing More Than Everything To Me directed by Max Minghella, son of legendary film director (and ice cream maker) Anthony Minghella.

You can catch Owens playing a live show in London later this year – he'll be performing with a seven(!) piece band.

Oh, and that's the artwork below. We're not sure what to make of it either.
