Minneapolis based songwriter, composer and multi-instrumentalist George Hadfield has announced the upcoming release of his new album Brenda on June 8th. Brenda is a futuristic throwback of mid-tempo meditations. Taking Hadfield’s groove based synth-pop sound into funkier landscapes, the songs explore: love, addiction, recovery, and trying to find peace in an increasingly chaotic world.
Hadfield has also shared the album’s title track following its debut on Minnesota Public Radio’s The Current 89.3. Listen to it now below!
Hadfield has written music for film and TV, and established himself as a notable session bassist and sideman in the legendary Minneapolis music scene. In 2015 he released his first EP, Secret Tapes, combining his love of analog synths, pop, hip-hop, funk and R&B. The title track was listed in the ‘Top 89 Local Songs 2015’ by MPR’s indie tastemakers, The Current. Spotify France featured the track ‘Never Told A Lie’ on their ‘Song Of The Day’ playlist.
Brenda was written, produced, and recorded by Hadfield, Danny O’Brien, Garrett Neal, and Stefon “Bionik” Taylor. The album was mixed by O’Brien and Taylor, and mastered by Huntley Miller. Hadfield will celebrate the release of the album with a home-town show June 14th at Icehouse in Minneapolis.
