Canadian music artist Alaskan Tapes is further ramping up his new album release by sharing the title track ‘Views from Sixteen Stories’. The ambient artist debuted it earlier this week (August 12, 2019) via Clash Magazine. It’s the follow up to the first shared track ‘The Times Are Tired‘.
During the discussion of the debut, Alaskan Tapes says about the single, “Views From Sixteen Stories was one of the last tracks I made for the album, and one of my personal favorites. It was mostly made up of multiple extra studio recordings, the drums were from the ‘The Times Are Tired’ Session, the horns were from the first french horn session, and the guitars and extra elements were added in afterward. It’s often that I use this tactic for songwriting since by the end of the writing process I’m so familiar with the recordings, I know how I want them to sound, and know what elements can go with what. This track also went through multiple forms, originally the drone at the end was supposed to be at the start with a different guitar melody as it slowly built up to the drums, but I ended up shortening it and putting a shorter version of the drone at the end. The remains of that version are found on the last track of the album.”
