Washed Out

Washed Out release new album 'Notes From a Quiet Life' out now via Sub Pop & share live performance of the track "Waking Up".

Washed Out, the group's creative force, Ernest Greene, has released their fifth and most audacious album to date, Notes From a Quiet Life, worldwide from Sub Pop. The music of Washed Out has always levitated over a timeless frontier. You can sense it in his immersive, amorphous vocals, expansive soundscapes, and wistful storytelling.

Today, Washed Out has shared a one-take, live performance of 'Wait on You,' which was filmed on location in Bandera, Texas, and directed by Jonah Haber, who captured the inimitable footage of Greene performing 'Waking Up (Solar Eclipse Performance.)'

In 2021, Greene left Atlanta to return to the countryside he knew growing up. Where escapism once flooded his thoughts, today, he is preoccupied with the universe of wonder in the reality around him.

He named the former horse farm he moved to “Endymion” (after the pastoral John Keats poem about a lovesick shepherd — its opening line: “A thing of beauty is a joy for ever”).

It has shaped all that he’s created there, from his music to his albums’ creative direction to his planned large-scale visual-art experiments. That purity of vision is what makes Notes From a Quiet Life so potent. It’s the first album Greene wholly self-produced, with mixing assistance from Nathan Boddy (James Blake, Mura Masa) and David Wrench (Caribou, Florence + the Machine.).

Additionally, Washed Out has expanded its North American run, with newly announced dates in October & November. Details and tickets here.
