Nathan Hussey, best known as the frontman and primary songwriter for the Texas alternative rock outfit, All Get Out, debuted a new single “All Things” from his solo project, Hussey, today on Brooklyn Vegan. “All Things”, the first offering from Hitchens, his upcoming full-length on Equal Vision Records, is a laid back, beautiful track that offers a glimpse into a much different side of who Hussey is as a songwriter than we’re used to seeing. As Hussey points out, ”All Things” is the song that “really opened up the album” to him as a writer and it serves as a perfect introduction to what we can expect on Hitchens.
“All Things” sets the stage for Hitchens, Hussey’s new solo album due out in January on Equal Vision Records. Thematically, Hitchens is an observation on the Human Condition interpreted through personal experiences. It draws largely from the life and suffering of it’s namesake; the catalytic author and orator, Christopher Hitchens. However, it was not so much Hitchen’s politics that Hussey found inspiration in, but his intelligence, the veracity with which he supported his beliefs, his constant quest for personal evolution and, most of all, his life story. According to Hussey, the record is “more about the impact of someone not only in my life but in the pseudo-fiction used to represent how we feel about another person. Sometimes a character says it better than you ever could”.
