The album‘We Don’t Have Each Other’ will be released in the UK on July 7th via Hopeless Records. It was produced by Ace Enders of The Early November at The Living Room studio.
“I had been thinking a lot over the past year about records like ‘All Hail West Texas’ and ‘Reunion Tour’ where The Mountain Goats and The Weakerthans were able to make me fall in love with the people in their songs,” explains Campbell. “They created such real, whole characters that I found myself invested in their lives and their stories. I then realized that almost every book, every movie, every show that I really love is fiction and that it doesn’t at all effect how deeply I care for the characters.”
“Everything I had ever written lyrically up to this point had been non-fiction. I wanted to push myself to get those same emotions out of a character piece, to make a piece of fiction feel just as raw and personal as songs about my life, and so I created a man named Aaron and I set out to truly understand him. I wanted to know where his parents were from and what God he grew up knowing. I wanted to know what football team breaks his heart every December and if he has it in him to give up smoking. I wanted to know how he got here. I wanted to know how he handled tragedy.”
