Yesterday, we told you about Michael Baker‘s album with a surprise release of key track ‘Big Moon’ and as promised here’s the new record, Salt, to be listened to in full.
Featuring additional tracks like ‘Baby Books’, ‘Past The Evening’ and ‘One God Damn’, this ten-track record marks a moment of growth and reflection for the English-French songwriter.
Here, Baker compares the Salt LP to debut work Dust & Bone:
“My first album was your classic, for want of a better word, heartbreak record. Coming past that period of my life, I made this album the one where I was able to talk about mental health. I was turning 30 in the music industry, that was hard. You question a lot of things at that age until you start realizing that it’s not all that serious. Ultimately, it was the happiest two years of my life while making this record. I have a wonderful girlfriend, wonderful friends, but still the same mental health problems that I’d been able to blame on other things before. It shocked me that I was still having these ups and downs.”
