Kevin Hackett is telling all on his new album. Released July 23, ‘AWAKE AFTER MIDNIGHT‘ is the latest offering from Hackett, which he describes as “a record about falling for someone for the first time, in all its intricacies.”
The project is three tracks long, each song seemingly derived from an individual word in the title. For instance, the song “After” is about, as Hackett describes it, “the struggles and pain of long distance during COVID, as well as insecurity – knowing that the one you love might struggle to see themselves in all the beautiful ways that you see them.”
“The sad reality is that we can often be incredibly hard on ourselves and fail to recognize our own beauty. Yet it is an amazing realization to know that we have people in our lives who see what we can’t,” Hackett goes on to say, discussing the EP.
“Before I had someone to think about while listening to love songs, I would often daydream of someone who didn’t even exist yet while listening to some of my favourites. I hope that you can find that emotional tug that I was channeling as you listen to this EP.”
