Kevin Whelan of The Wrens has shared a new single under his Aeon Station moniker. ‘Leaves’ is taken from his upcoming album Observatory, which is out December 10 via Sub Pop and includes the previously released single ‘Queens’, his first new music in more than a decade. Give the new track a listen below.
“‘Leaves’ is about finding the courage to leave negative people or situations behind,” Kevin Whelan explained in a press release. “It is not about giving up or feeling defeated. It’s about learning self-love, finding your voice, and setting on a path for a chance at something better.”
Whelan recorded Observatory in Union City, New Jersey with his Wrens bandmates Greg Whelan, Jerry MacDonald, and producer/guitarist Tom Beaujour. “It’s the best I’ve done and may ever do frankly,” Kevin Whelan said in an earlier statement. “It’s written over such a long period of my life. Music I did in the past was tinged with expectations or presumptions, but this time, it was just for me.”
