Nashville singer/songwriter David Borné’s upcoming full-length album, Genesis, follows a “path of healing” including “death, rebirth, and beginning again.” The album’s second single, “Disembodied Voices,” is out now and is about “letting go of fear—of setting aside ideations of rejection and overcoming mental health struggles.”
This was my higher self calling my ego out, and telling the real, fearless me to get up and get after it. On this journey I’ve often been plagued by the imposter, and a fear of being seen and rejected and this song is a rebuttal to that kind of thinking.
Genesis will arrive on September 22nd, 2023, and was Produced by Jarrad K (Ruston Kelly, Lucie Silvas, Elohim) and engineered by Grammy winner Gena Johnson (John Prine, Jason Isbell, Chris Stapleton). The album also features supporting musicians including a duet with Bre Kennedy, another with Hadley Kennary, Chris Powell (Brandi Carlile, The Highwomen, Sturgill Simpson) on drums, Lydia Luce on strings, and Liana Alpino on harp.
Borné adds that “the album plays a lot off the notion that joy and suffering, light and dark, learning and unlearning all take each other.”
