Chris Kiehne releases “Pray For Daylight”, gives it away for free!

On 9 March, 2011 by slowcoustic

Just wanted to let y’all know about an album that came out of nowhere (for me, not for him) and you all need a listen or two…  Chris Kiehne just “released” the album Pray For Daylight and is giving it away absolutely free because he simply wants it to be heard.  Well, I’m liking what I’m hearing.

Chris Kiehne was part of the band The National Lights that released one of my favourite albums of 2007, “The Dead Will Walk, Dear” and when I heard from Chris, I was excited for new material.  If you are a fan of The National Lights, you get a glimpse into what might have been next for the band with this new set of songs.  This new album from Kiehne was started a while back but due to technical difficulties (hard drive crash), half of it was lost.  Well, with the help of Jeff Alford (pianist and general music-partner) and Sonya Cotton (also of The National Lights) they re-recorded the last half of the album and now it is out there!  It combines soft acoustics, a bit of twang, piano and gorgeous melodies that make it a perfect Slowcoustic listen.

Try a sample below in the title track & a link for the entire album:

    Great post, Sman. I’ve listened to this album several times already and have fallen in love with it. Absolutely essential stuff for any Slowcoustic fan. I’ve been a fan of his ever since he released a free Halloween EP with Sonya Cotton several years ago. I don’t think it’s available for download anymore, but it would probably be a great topic for a future Slowcoustic post.

    Though he’s giving it away, I’d recommend that those who really enjoy it head over to his Bandcamp page and send a $5 donation his way. Even a poor, unemployed dude like myself can afford that, and it’s a great way to show appreciation for such wonderful music.

    Can anyone please send me the album or upload it? Seems like the downloadlink is broken…

    would be great!

    @Fabian – just tried it and it works… it does open in a new window, maybe you have a pop up blocker? Good Luck!
