The new album by Zane Tate, Down to Dusk: Rural Sounds Volume 2 is out now!
Seven years after my debut album, Boom Bap Sunrise, I’m excited to announce this new 7-song release of downtempo and chillout music called Down to Dusk: Rural Sounds Volume 2.
Down to Dusk is very much a follow up to Rural Sounds Volume 1. But unlike Boom Bap Sunrise, I wrote the songs on Down to Dusk at night, so the sound is much darker, more introspective.
Songs and Stories
Each song has a story, and is part of a larger theme. “Getaway” explores mystery and intrigue, imagining a cinematic plot. “The Man Called Thursday” is inspired by G.K. Chesterton novel. And I was reading a history of August Spies when I wrote the song of the same name. “The Great On We” is about collective despair and, well, ennui, while two chillout interludes provide contemplative moments. Finally, the record ends on a redemptive high note with “Hosanna, Superstar.”
