Strange Seasons, the debut album from rising London vocalist, songwriter and producer Khushi, is set for release September 13th, on Warner Records. “This Is, Pt. 1,” the third track to be released from the album, is out today—listen here.
Khushi recorded and produced Strange Seasons in a shed in east London over the past six years, pulling from more than a decade of songs and demos. Though Khushi originally released music under his own name in the early years of this decade, he took a several year break to work on other music before returning to this deeply personal project, isolating himself in the shed to find his purest creative expressions. Toward the end of the process, Khushi was introduced to James Blake and contributed writing and production to his acclaimed album Assume Form, Blake in turn mixed Strange Seasons and invited Khushi to join him on his recent North American and U.K. tours as support.
In celebration of the release, Khushi will play select shows this summer including August 10 at Chinatown Summer Nights and August 16 at Echo Park Rising in Los Angeles, with more dates to be announced.
Khushi was born and raised in London and lives in Los Angeles. He first rose to prominence with 2013’s “Magpie” and 2014’s “Phantoms.” Of Indian descent, he is also a member of the critically acclaimed band Strong Asian Mothers, a U.K. favorite who have played festivals across Europe and spent time on the A-list on BBC radio playlists and toured widely.
