Christopher Owens: "Lysandre"

Details of Christopher Owens' first live performance since the announcement of his highly anticipated solo debut, "Lysandre" has been received exceptionally well. With the first London date  sold out, we are sure the second will soon follow suit. 

The former GIRLS front-man, will premiere "Lysandre" from start to finish alongside the full band from the studio recordings. He has already played a special show in his hometown of San Francisco, at their acclaimed venue The Lodge. We learnt the show was filmed and only a small portion of tickets were made available to purchase.
Owens announced"Lysandre"  last month and streamed two tracks, Lysandre’s Theme Here We Go from his official website.

Lysandre  was written, recorded and sequenced as a complete narrative. Sources say it was inspired by the events of Girls' first ever tour in the summer of 2008. Described by Owens as,

 “A coming of age story, a road trip story, a love story”

Written almost entirely in one creative outpouring and recorded with former Girls producer Doug Boehm, Lysandre follows Owens from San Francisco to New York City and on to the French Riviera before a melancholy return home and a beautifully articulated epilogue.

Perfectly framed by intricate instrumentation, gorgeous backing vocals and pristine production, Owens’ enthralling, personal songwriting takes center stage and delivers a heartbreaking rumination on love, longing, friendship, adventure and the thrill of finding an audience for your art.
It is due for release via Fat Possum on January 15th, 2013, AND via Turnstile on January 14th, 2013, for ROW
