Tim Hart (Boy & Bear) To Release New Album ‘The Narrow Corner’ On February 2nd
October 20, 2017 BY Nettwerk
Tim Hart of the acclaimed Australian indie rock/folk band Boy & Bear is excited to announce his sophomore album The Narrow Corner, set for release on February 2, 2018 via Nettwerk.
The first single, the catchy and touchingly melancholic “I’d Do Well,” premiered via Clash and is out today. “I’m really stoked to be releasing my new single ‘I’d Do Well,’” Hart explains. “For me, this song was written in one of my more introspective moments on tour…missing home and thinking back to living life a bit more simply.”
Hart has a thing for honesty and convictions. He’s just not used to talking about it. As the drummer of insanely popular Boy & Bear, the majority of Hart’s musical life is spent behind the drum kit, touring the world, singing back-up vocals, and contributing song-writing to the award-winning Sydney group’s beloved songs and spirit.
This high-profile existence pushed Hart to make his 2012 debut album, Milling the Wind, a bare bones folk record. “Something that wasn’t so meticulous and thought out,” he says now. But for his long-overdue second album, The Narrow Corner, concept was shunted aside for life experience.
The forthcoming album reunites Hart with Milling the Wind-producer Mark Myers (The Middle East, Emma Louise, Timberwolf), as well as Sydney producer Wayne Connolly (Cloud Control, You Am I, The Vines), responsible for Boy & Bear’s #1 ARIA charted album Harlequin Dream. Both encouraged Hart to hone his craft.
A stunningly captivating album full of autumnal thrills, The Narrow Corner hinges on themes of loss, disconnection, and how travel alters perspective, for better and worse. It also introduces Hart as a skilled and plainspoken curator of his own interior universe.
