Noted Americana singer-songwriter Roger Street Friedman has announced the release of a new album, Love Hope Trust, due on Nov. 4. The album was produced by Grammy-winner Larry Campbell and boasts performances from Jason Crosby on keyboards, Teresa Williams and Lucy Kaplansky on background vocals, and a cameo from legendary accordionist Gil Goldstein.
In a statement delivered via a press release, Friedman provided some insights on the album, and its impending material. “This album encompasses a myriad of concerns, fears, joys and sorrows inherent in everyday life in this crazy world from the perspective of age—dare I say maturity—and gratitude,” Friedman asserted. “I strive to get to emotional truths in my songwriting where people say, ‘oh yeah, I’ve experienced that,’ or just to make people feel something, sadness, joy or longing. That is what makes an album of mine feel successful.”
The album’s producer, Campbell, expressed excitement about the forthcoming record. He shared, “Making this record with Roger Street Friedman was one of the most fulfilling experiences I’ve had as a producer,” Campbell proclaimed. “Great songs, well-crafted lyrics and melodies, vibrant performances, and the creative inspiration that sprang from that made it a joy to show up at the studio every day.”
To celebrate today’s announcement, Friedman has released the music video for the title track to the album. Watch the video below and keep up to date on upcoming news at Friedman’s website.
