dan knishkowy’s adeline hotel project has long had a collaborative air surrounding it, and his latest album is no exception.  away together, due later this fall, features a robust ensemble of familiar faces and first-time contributors all working in concert to flesh out knishkowy’s sketches of melancholic americana.

on the album’s lead single, “habits,” knishkowy is at the helm of a loping acoustic foundation, yearning in gorgeous harmony with fellow new york songwriter cassandra jenkins for an ever-elusive state of contentedness.  with well-placed pedal steel swoons throughout and a contemplative guitar solo commandeering its final minute, “habits” feels like the sonic embodiment of leaves changing color, a perfect record for a moment of pause within an ongoing transitory period.

away together is due october 26th via ruination record co.  take a listen to “habits” below.
