‘Roadhouse 01’ chronicles Allan’s retreat to an isolated cabin in the woods of Lost Springs, where he wrestles with his demons in the form of a rebellious alter ego, Mr. Roadhouse. It covers a lot of narrative territory, from the fluttery, vulnerable, hip-hop infused “Repeat” to the closing tracks on the album, where the antagonistic Mr. Roadhouse fully takes over. The album fuses R&B, hip hop, and folk influences with dark, seductive storytelling.
The announcement follows on the heels of Allan’s recently wrapped North American tour with James Vincent McMorrow that led into sold-out headlining gigs at NYC’s Baby’ All Right and Toronto’s Royal Cinema. Additional tour dates to follow.
