Keaton Henson Announces New Album ‘House Party’, Shares New Single ‘Envy’

    Keaton Henson has announced his next LP: House Party will be released on June 9 via Play It Again Sam. Today, the singer-songwriter has released a new single, ‘Envy’, alongside an accompanying video. Check it out and find the House Party‘s cover artwork and tracklist below.

    Introducing the new album, Henson said in a statement: “I wanted to make an upbeat confident pop record about depression and being a performer, written from the viewpoint of an artist who has hollowed himself out over a long career in the name of success, an alternate universe version of me, who is left empty and lonely from climbing to the top, but is still only able to express these feelings in the language of confident, performative pop songs.”

    Of ‘Envy’, he added:

    Everything these days is so performative and aspirational, and we all seem to live in envy of people and lives that aren’t ours and we’re convinced would solve all our problems and feelings of emptiness. It’s about getting to the place where you always wanted to be, and were convinced would make everything better, and realising it hasn’t worked, and the scary realisation that no amount of money or success or fame will.

    I think the guy in the song has forsaken all his friendships and meaningful relationships to get to this place in his life or career, and now, realising it was never going to make him happy, is lamenting his loneliness and the wasted years, and trying to warn others away from the same way of thinking.

    Keaton Henson’s last studio album was 2020’s Monument.
