Cooper Kenward Announces New LP,

Today, indie-folk singer-songwriter Cooper Kenward announces his forthcoming self-titled debut LP, due August 22 via Dogwood Dog Records. To celebrate and kick off the album cycle, he also shares a brand new single entitled “Make Me Blue”, which comes with an accompanying music video. On this track, Kenward (guitar/vox) collaborated with Andrew Maguire (drums), Jason Abraham Roberts (additional guitar), and Robert Shelton (Moog bass).

“I made the ‘Make Me Blue’ music video as an experiment in self-acceptance. Some of my inspirations were the unique warm humanity captured in the films of Les Blank and the surreal comedy that Leos Carax creates. We shot on 16mm to evoke a kind of lost in time feeling and cast friends to keep everything loose and carefree. Sometimes I can get in my head about the act of performance and this video was me telling myself to snap out of it and have a good time.”
