John Floreani has given fans one more taste of his forthcoming debut full-length album with the release of “Before The Devil Knows I’m Dead” today. The hauntingly beautiful track showcases Floreani’s unique vocal quality and lyrically dives into questions of love and the afterlife. On the track, Floreani shares “My partner is Catholic. Her faith is very important to her. I’ve never felt deserving of someone so pure and so good, and so I wonder if it ever concerns her that she would spend her afterlife alone. Because, where she’s going, they don’t let folk like me inside.” Fans can stream “Before The Devil Knows I’m Dead” today at http://smarturl.it/BTDKIDVisual.
Today’s release joins previous singles “Echoes” and “Oh Brother” as a preview of what’s to come from Floreani’s first full-length album, sin, due out June 7th via Hopeless Records. The highly anticipated follow up to previously released EP Terrace (2014) shows the unabashed frontman of Trophy Eyes embracing musical influences ranging from indie pop/alt rock to folk/Americana.
sin is a lyrical deep dive into heartache, addiction and self-loathing, stylistically portrayed as Johnny Cash dipped in Neon. Recorded and mixed by Shane Edwards (Trophy Eyes, Hans Zimmer), it is the pursuit of happiness and all that is good, built on a foundation of vice and evil-doing.
