Ten years ago Ray LaMontagne released his first album, TROUBLE, the gold-certified start to a fiercely ambitious, Grammy Award-winning, critically praised career that’s encompassed three more albums, several EPs, a slew of soundtrack compilations and arresting live performances fronting a variety of ensembles.
“It certainly feels like some time has passed,” LaMontagne says now. “But I have to say, boy, time flies…”
And LaMontagne is still having fun all these years later — and with his fifth album, SUPERNOVA, maybe more fun than ever.
“Fun is a trite word. I kind of hate to use it — but at the same time, I don’t know how else to say it,” LaMontagne says of the 10-song set, which was produced by the Black Keys’ Dan Auerbach and recorded at his Easy Eye Sound studio in Nashville. “It was just an enjoyable process. These songs reflect just my joy of songwriting, what I enjoy about writing songs. they feel free to me. I didn’t have to go searching around through cupboards to find the missing pieces; all the puzzle bits would just sort of burst to life in front of me. I just grabbed them and pieced them together and then would be surprised at what was in front of me — like, ‘Wow, that’s cool!’
“It’s an experience unlike any other I’ve had making a record.”
