Cullen Omori – New Misery

Smith Westerns’ frontman Cullen Omori has announced a solo album, New Misery, due out March 18 on Sub Pop. “There is so much dirt in hospitals and fuzz and lint and dried blood on these [stretchers and wheelchairs],” Omori wrote in a statement of his inspiration for the album. “We’d clean them down, which in a way is kind of therapeutic, and listen to the radio. Then we’d go back to [band member] Adam [Gil]’s house and record demos for what was to become the skeleton of New Misery. I can’t sit down and say I’m going to write a Sam Smith or an Adele song or whatever. The closest I can get to that is making like this weird hybrid of what I think is a pop song.”
