Ottoman Turks frontman and songwriter Nathan Mongol Wells will release his debut solo album, From A Dark Corner, on August 18th, 2023 via State Fair Records. The first song that Wells wrote for the album is “Beulah Land,” a tale about loss, and it has been released as an album preview. The track’s black and white video was shot and edited by Julian Sol Jordan.
Rather than about a romantic relationship, it’s about a friendship falling apart, which I think in many ways is more devastating.
Recorded, mixed, and produced by John Pedigo and co-produced by Turks member and emerging artist Joshua Ray Walker, the album From A Dark Corner incorporates semi-autobiography.
With a little help from his Deep Ellum friends, Nathan Mongol Wells is primed for a busy 2023, including a full tour in support of his debut album.
