Now Hear This: Asaf Avidan | Anagnorisis

I'm getting caught up on the good albums that have come out lately. Like this one.

THE PRESS RELEASE:Asaf Avidan has shared his new album Anagnorisis, a 10-song collection recorded earlier this year in Italy during the early stages of the COVID-19 pandemic. Recording in relative isolation, Asaf uses the album’s songs to tap into the complex, inherently chaotic and ever-changing nature of what it means to live in our current moment.

In a career that has seen him hit #1 in 14 countries across Europe, headline the continent’s biggest festivals and sell out its biggest concert halls, Anagnorisis marks what is perhaps Avidan’s most complete statement as an artist to date. Named after the Greek literary device in which a character experiences a sudden and complete moment of revelation, Anagnorisis comes to the conclusion that nothing is truly that simple or that easy.”
