On September 28th, John Butler Trio will launch a new album, HOUSE, through Nettwerk Records, following up 2014’s Flesh & & Blood. Yesterday, Relix premiered the video for the second track off the album, a tune called “Pitch in The Water”.
As John Butler explained to Relix about the new album,
I’ve been dealing with stress and anxiety on and off for ages. I hadn’t always been able to call it. It was in this fractured state that I started trying to wrangle this brand-new mob of songs– wild horses I ‘d met over the last 4 years. Songs about domesticity, love, what it indicates to be a contemporary male and personal insights into dealing with my nervous projections. Tunes have always been my friends. No matter what I’m going through they help me convey the things my heart feels but my brain is too scared to say. But facing this herd in this state would prove uniquely challenging. As things turned out that journey would in fact be vital in helping me deal with my shit. In the meantime though, I was lost and in some way I had to discover my way house. There was no choice. Like that classic children’s book, ‘We’re Going On A Bear Hunt’ says; “Can’t go under it. Can’t go over it. Can’t go around it. MUST go through it.The seriously acclaimed Australian artist also talked to Relix about “Pitch In The Water”, describing it as “one of my preferred tunes off of the album. “Continued Butler, It’s a soul-searching pronouncement and a journey back to myself. The words just kinda fell out and I didn’t actually understand what they indicated for a long time up until I stood back and took a look at the song and the passage of time I ‘d simply been through. This song celebrates my love for Led Zeppelin, Hip Hop backbeat, Indian traditional music and is one of my favorite tunes to play live.You can take a listen to the recently released track,”Wade In The Water, from John Butler Trio off their
