With an expansive catalog of 22 studio albums, SANS will mark Williams’ first-ever entirely instrumental release, offering fresh, innovative takes on eight numbers in addition to one completely new song. You can listen to a new rendition of “Ticks When Told”, which originally appeared on Williams’ acoustic album RAW, here.As Keller told Live For Live Music in a recent interview, “This is the first attempt at creating an instrumental record, and a lot of these songs are ones I have been playing for twenty years but have never seen a bass line or a drum part. It’s really fun to revisit these songs and make them new again by adding different parts while staying true to the arrangement.”He continued,It’s more like an attempt to release an album of music like the stuff I usually listen to. The music that I play and release is often different than the music I listen to, strangely enough. I’ve been listening to electronic music for the past fifteen years or so. This is moving forward in my tongue-in-cheek idea of making acoustic dance music. This is acoustic guitar, acoustic bass, and lots of groovy loops, samples, and live percussion. Basically, I’m trying to create a mixture of acoustic music and dance music, but using the acoustic guitar as the meat—the main ingredient.To celebrate the forthcoming release of SANS, Keller Williams will play a special album-release show at New York City’s Brooklyn Bowl on October 19th. Fans who pre-order the new album between now and September 24th will also be eligible for the “In the Gutter with Keller at The Brooklyn Bowl” contest, which will grant one winner an all-expense paid trip to the album-release party in Brooklyn.In addition to this album and its release extravaganza, Keller Williams will keep himself busy this fall, announcing a number of new tour dates. Given Williams’ broad range of projects, from September through December, Williams will be hitting the road and performing in various formats, including as PettyGrass with The Hillbenders, Grateful Grass, Keller and The Keels, More Than A Little, and a Keller Williams’ Duo with Danton Boller.You can check out the full track listing for the upcoming SANS below, in addition to Keller Williams’ newly announced fall tour dates.
