Micah P. Hinson is to release a new album titled ‘Micah P. Hinson and the Nothing’, this will be his first release on French label, Talitres. The album comprises a collection of songs written before a bad car accident, whilst touring Spain during the summer of 2011. Flown back to Texas, doctors were consulted and the future use of Micah’s arms hung in the balance. With this in mind, he began listening to demos he’d made before the Spanish trip. The songs took on a new light and he began sending them off to people around the world including The Twilight Sad and his Texan side-kick, T. Nicholas Phelps. With their help Micah began to create a record without the use of his arms.
Micah was subsequently invited to record in Santander, Spain, at Moon River Studio. For two weeks and two days, with the assisitance of enginer by Fernanda ‘Mac’ Macava, Micah realised what was to become ‘Micah P. Hinson and The Nothing’, working with an astounding array of local musicians – The Aquattro String Quartet. Listen to On The Way Home (To Abilene):
The album will be released on March 10th prior a UK in April (dates below).
