'Daniel Johnston's first new album in over 7 years'
Johnston is the musician's cult hero! - A wide range of artists have covered Johnston's songs, incl Beck, Wilco, Sonic Youth, TV On The Radio, Flaming Lips, Death Cab For Cutie, Bright Eyes, Tom Waits, Pearl Jam.
On this album, Daniel allied with the musician and producer Jason Falkner, (Beck, Air). "Is And Always Was" was a project that aimed to take the rock and roll symphonies in Daniel's prolific musical brain and deliver fully-realized and professionally-produced songs. 'He possesses that rare individuality that makes the listener wonder where this music comes from'
Falkner says of Daniel Johnston. 'It was challenging to make our minds work together but I really found myself immersed in his musical world. It's aunique place to live, that's for sure!' - As with all Johnston recordings however, it's the only-Daniel-Johnston-could-write-those-lyrics that shines throughout.
