The Teskey Brothers’ Sam Teskey has kicked off his solo career by releasing his debut single and announcing his upcoming album.
The song ‘Love’, which has premiered alongside a simple yet stunning lyric video, will serve as the opening track from the forthcoming record Cycles.
A reprise of the track, titled ‘Then Love Returns’, is then set to close the album.
In a statement, Teskey explained that the reprise represents the concept of the album.
“It just loops around in that sense. It could be a life cycle. Or a year. Or a day. At the start you can see the sunrise and then it goes all the way around and you’re seeing the same sunrise. The whole movement of a cycle,” he said.
He continued: “A big point of this album is for people to create their own journey and their own story with it.”
“There’s lots of things that I can explore and think about and say about the record, but I really want to leave the experience up to the listener. To see what comes to them. It feels really nice to put the creativity back in the listeners’ hands.”
