SPIRIT OF A GHOST EP - OUT NOW
The second album from Thee Conductor titled “Spirit of a Ghost” gently hits the earth for all ears on January 22, 2021.
The group emerges with 8 new songs and includes the lovely singing of Bonnie Prince Billy, Jana Horn and Will Johnson. Lead by Jason Butler and engineer Justin Douglas (King Electric Recording), the group continues forward movement as a collaborative art project pulling in best friends who are accomplished in their own respective right. The group also includes: The Tosca String Quartet (David Byrne), Michael Patrick St. Clair & Derek Phelps (both of Hard Proof), Vince Delgado (Knife in the Water), Christopher Cox (composer), Sonya Gonzales (Polytrue) & many other wonderful friends.
Since starting the record in 2018, Butler (a late bloomer), has experienced lots of logistical delays including the effects of the pandemic limiting studio access. After cautious planning this body of work was finally completed July 2020.
Butler and Bonnie Prince Billy continue their working relationship as he sings on two of the songs on the new album,“Tsk, tsk” and “Night Light”. Official video releases accompany each of these with Bonnie appearing in human form in the video for “Night Light”. Chicago artist Scott Shellhamer made the “Night Light” video and artist Mark Pearsall (Design Hut) created the “Tsk, tsk” video with his meticulous, labour intensive, animated paper drawings.
Butler and his creative cohort known as Thee Conductor once again deliver an album of self reflection and beautiful singing. “Spirit of a Ghost” provides an abundance of horns, strings, singing, strumming, drumming, a remix, an iPhone recording, sadness, happiness, gentle intention, poignant words, darkness, rainbow skies, candy kisses & nighttime butterflies.
