STATEMENT FROM NEWSKI:
Big news today pals. I am proud to announce my third studio album, Life Upside Down out Sept 7 worldwide via Backseat and Nomad Union.
The past few years I’ve struggled hard with feelings of massive anxiety in my personal and professional life. It was that nervous energy that sparked the creation of these recordings. I hope these songs are evidence that anxiety/depression isn’t all terrible and can actually serve as positive, motivational force.
I wrote this album for the outsiders, introverts, and independent thinkers…what some would call the “non-cool crowd”. These are my people. The ones who don’t jump on bandwagons or care what their peers are wearing, watching or listening to. They like what they like, and while that may not be hip, it’s something to be proud of.
This album will not help you gain “scene cred” or popularity, but it will offer you a safe place to go when life gets wobbly.
Thru June only, you can get the album ahead of the rest of the world by joining the Dream Team on Patreon (LP ships Aug 1). Upon signup, you will ALSO RECIEVE receive a “Dave Grohl Does Not Listen to Brett Newski” shirt. http://patreon.com/brettnewski1
Loads of tour dates coming soon. Thanks for sticking with me. Have a calm and productive day 🙂
Everyone is under the thumb of something: anxiety, toxic relationships, self-bullying, a miserable job, the list goes on. Life Upside Down is an album about turning life right side up. It’s about getting free from the worst enemy of all: thyself.
Brett Newski has certainly kicked his own ass over the past 6 years, touring infinitely (mostly alone) and wandering downthe rabbit hole of anxiety, depression, and wallowing self-doubt. All of these negatives have blossomed into positive creative energy on his third LP.
“Anxiety can actually be a good thing. If you use it right, that nervous energy can be channeled into motivation or creativity,” explains Newski. “Even the most seemingly confident people have self doubt.”
Produced by Hutch Harris of Sub-Pop legends The Thermals and engineered by Beau Sorenson (Death Cab for Cutie, Superchunk, Bob Mould), Life Upside Down is a beautiful catharsis to a happier brain and sense of belonging. If you frequently find yourself stuck in your own head traffic, this record might help get you free.
Growing up on Pixies, Cake, Beck, Weezer, and Violent Femmes (who Newski has toured with on several occasions), Life Upside Down channels a raw 90s sound that brings you back to an era where guitars were king and MacBooks didn’t count as a live instrument.
Catch Brett Newski in a land near you on the Life Upside Down world tour.
