Singer songwriter Trevor Hall surprised his fans with the sudden release of his new 12-track album Chapter of the Forest.
The album, which debuted at #3 on the iTunes Singer/Songwriter chart and #17 on the iTunes Overall Albums chart, is available today via iTunes and the Vanguard Records store.
Hall posted the announcement yesterday morning via Facebook with the following note:
“Dear Villagers, IN FULLNESS OF HEART, I know a lot of y’all have been asking when the new album comes out. Just wanted to let you know that it comes out……TOMORROW!"
He further went on to announce, “Be sure to tune in tonight for the Livestream at 8:00pm Pacific. We’ll be rockin’ a bunch of new tunes off CHAPTER OF THE FOREST….Let’s do this.
Hall performed a live concert via his YouTube channel last night where he debuted some of the new songs including the single “Wish Man.”
Watch the performance here:
The 12 songs on Chapter of the Forest were born during a yearlong sabbatical where Hall returned to his beloved India, Nepal, Vermont, and Maine, and spent that time in deep reflection and spiritual connection embracing life-altering events.
Hall explains in his own words, “This album is inspired by simplicity, by the roots of life, and by the beauty that one finds in solitude and in nature. I am more excited than ever before due to the fact that this is the first record that I have done entirely on my own…purely from the heart.”
Listen to his track “Wish Man”:
