On May 20 Pete Muller will release his latest studio album via Two Truths Records. Rob Mathes (Sting, Bettye LaVette Panic! At The Disco!) produced Spaces, continuing a creative partnership, that began with Muller’s 2019’s record Dissolve.
Muller is joined by his touring band for much of the record. Pete Muller and The Kindred Souls were identified as one of the Best Emerging Acts of AmericanaFest 2021 for their vocal harmonies and “upbeat and effusive tunes.” Muller also enlisted Larry Campbell, Charlie Giordano, Dave Silliman and Skip Ward to join him on Spaces.
Today we premiere the official video for “Gone” from the forthcoming album. Muller tells Relix, “’Gone’ is one of the rawest songs on the record. It’s a song about betrayal, and the deep anger that wells up when someone close to you lets you down. When that happened to me, I knew, both intellectually and spiritually, that revenge and anger were not good paths to go down. I was confident I would journey to the other side of both, towards understanding, acceptance, and forgiveness.
“But when I wrote the song, I was still really shattered. I knew that I had to let go of my anger, but I wasn’t there yet. I often turn to music to help me heal, and writing ‘Gone’ helped me through a time of clenched fists and a heavy heart. Maybe that’s why my bandmates have told me it’s the song on Spaces that moves them the most.”
