David Eugene Edwards (16 Horsepower, Woven Hand) has announced his debut solo album. On September 29, he’ll release Hyacinth via Sargent House. The first song he’s shared is “Lionisis.” Check out its video below, along with the album’s artwork and tracklist, and Edwards’ upcoming European tour dates.

Hyacinth was a sort of vision,“ Edwards said in a statement. “A dream. I sought out of my old wooden banjo and nylon string guitar a hidden path. Secrets they had kept from me within themselves all these years, and created a new Mythos to myself of philosophical and spiritual ideas or concepts.

“Overall, I guess the album is a weaving of narratives ancient and modern, of humankind’s search for understanding of this world we find ourselves in and of each other. In all its simplicity and complexity,” he continued. “Hyacinth is a reference to the Greek myth of Apollo. And, the word meaning a precious stone and blue larkspur flower of purple and pall.” 

16 Horsepower’s “For Heaven’s Sake” is featured on our list, A History of Alt-Country in 40 Essential Tracks.
