Singer-songwriter, Trevor Hall has a new EP Unpack Your Memories set to release on March 27th via Vanguard Records. As a teaser, Hall has released a video trailer for the new EP that was directed by his wife, Emory Hall.
Unpack Your Memories is a five track EP and is said to include Trevor Hall’s most personal songs. Here’s what Hall had to say in a press release regarding the EP: “Unpack Your Memories is a collection of songs that have been in my ‘vault’ for a long time now,” Hall says. “Some just didn’t make the other albums and some were just too intimate to share at the time. Now they are ready to breathe and be shared with others. The name of the album says everything… These are all songs that have become memories for me. I am reaching into my bag and unpacking them – unpacking their meaning, the memory of where I was when I wrote them, and the feelings that they brought me so many years ago. As the saying goes, ‘You never meet the same river twice.’ Every time I hear these songs, they teach me something new or offer me the gift of a new perspective. There are many other songs that are still in my vault, but I felt these were the most important to share at this time. The songs all came up together like the roots of a tree, and have taken form in the EP.”
Below is a video trailer for Unpack Your Memories that was directed by his wife Emory Hall and takes the viewer on a personal journey through some of Hall’s most beautiful memories of his life. This EP follows the June 2014 surprise release of Chapter of the Forest. Without a release date or any kind of advance promo, Trevor Hall just surprised fans by dropping a brand new 12 track album with a song featuring Nahko. This was just before he went on tour with SOJA, Michael Franti & Nahko last summer.
Trevor Hall will follow this EP release with an Australian and U.S. tour starting in April. He’ll perform his Bluesfest debut in Australia while hitting the Soulshine Festival and the California Roots Festival in addition to Wanderlust in the U.S.
