Check out all the latest news from Spain as the release new video from their latest album.
Spain releases new music video for their track Maya In the Summer. The track is off their seventh studio album, [Spain Mandala Brush] which was released on September 28th. The album features founding member Josh Haden (bass, lead vocals), and longtime collaborators Kenny Lyon (guitar), Shon Sullivan (acoustic guitar, keyboards) and Danny Frankel (drums). It was produced by Kenny and Josh in Los Angeles, CA.
Also performing on the album are two of Josh’s sisters, Petra Haden (violin, backing vocals) and Tanya Haden (cello, backing vocals), along with Mike Bolger (accordian, trumpet), Matthew DeMerritt (flute, saxophone), and David Ralicke (clarinet, flute, trombone), all regulars at Spain’s long-running Los Angeles residency at the Love Song Bar. Petra and Tanya’s collaborations stretch all the way back to the first Spain album, 1995’s The Blue Moods of Spain.
With this album Josh wanted to replicate the sound he’s been capturing at Spain’s live shows. All of the songs were recorded live in the studio. There were no click tracks used. Many of the songs were developed at the Love Song over a period of several months.
About the album title, Josh says,
“A mandala is an ancient and sacred symbol representing the oneness of the universe. The “brush” in the context of this album is a modern and secular tool used in computer art applications. The mandala brush helps facilitate the creation of mandalas, but is never a finished mandala in and of itself.”
