Pat Metheny has shared the second single from his upcoming record, From this Place. You can take a listen above.
Following on from the previously released America Undefined, the track begins understatedly, building to a more complex, busy texture.
From This Place is Metheny’s first record since 2014’s Kin (←→). Backing the guitarist on the album are longtime drummer Antonio Sanchez, bassist Linda May Han Oh and pianist Gwilym Simcock. Metheny also enlisted the Hollywood Studio Symphony, led by conductor Joe McNeely.
Metheny said of the record, “From This Place is one of the records I have been waiting to make my whole life. It is a kind of musical culmination, reflecting a wide range of expressions that have interested me over the years, scaled across a large canvas, presented in a way that offers the kind of opportunities for communication that can only be earned with a group of musicians who have spent hundreds of nights together on the bandstand.”
