The voice of Haken, Ross Jennings has released his new single “Words We Can’t Unsay” in official lyric video form — check out the clip (created by Jack Vashko) below. The track is the first single from his debut solo album ‘A Shadow of my Future Self,’ which is scheduled for release later this year.
A press release states, ““Words We Can’t Unsay” features Ross Jennings on vocals and guitar, with Nathan Navarro (Devin Townsend) on Bass, Vikram Shankar (Redemption, Lux Terminus, Silent Skies) on Keyboards & Simen Sandnes (Arkentype) on drums plus special guests Norwegian brass sensations ‘Blasemafian’ also make an appearance. The song is mixed by Karim Sinno & mastered by Ermin Hamidovic (Haken, Plini) with artwork designed by longtime Haken collaborator BLACKLAKE.”
Ross adds, “This was one of the first pieces I committed to demo when embarking on this project. I knew I wanted a more accessible direction but I never predicted how well all the layers and different genre references would come together. The song is about relationships, about those heated moments when we say hurtful things we don’t mean. It’s a very real experience we’ve all had and writing a song about it has been a kind of healing therapy for me.”
In addition and to coincide with the new song, Ross has also announced details for his new live streaming event being called ‘Acoustic Shadows,’ which airs on July 23rd through Munin.live.
“Ross will perform acoustic renditions of songs from his forthcoming debut album ‘A Shadow of my Future Self’ and much more including songs from other projects he is known for,” says the presser.
Speaking on the virtual gig, Ross comments, “We’re in lockdown and I can’t meet up with my bands to perform, so I’ve decided to make a bold move, dust off that guitar and face a solo live gig head on, even if it is just to cameras! I haven’t performed solo like this since my days playing open mic nights in the local pub, but I know for sure this is going to be a wildly unique experience.”
