Announcing the launch of a brand new catalog of archive releases! The You’ve Changed Records Archive Series will present limited edition vinyl pressings of albums that had previously received digital-only releases, with a new catalog numbering beginning at YCA-001. The Archive Series launches with the first two releases from Daniel Romano’s unprecedented run of albums released in 2020 at the onset of the Covid-19 global pandemic: “Visions of The Higher Dream” and “Content To Point The Way”. Both titles will be released on May 20, 2022.
In 2020, Daniel Romano and his increasingly exalted band “The Outfit” were forced home, faced with the cancellation of tours and all live engagements due to public health necessities. Almost immediately, Daniel instigated a near legendary run of new albums, releasing 10 full-length albums in the span of nearly the same number of weeks. Genre-spanning, astoundingly distinct artist achievements of an unprecedented order, these albums were originally released exclusively in digital only formats on Bandcamp. They were direct and immediate missives from one of the most talented, prolific, ambitious, and exciting artists of his generation. We are thrilled to begin releasing these albums now in very special limited-edition vinyl pressings.
“Visions Of The Higher Dream” is an expression of rich, visionary psychaedelia, powerfully arranged and immaculately performed, and thoroughly beautiful in its scope and in its details. It is as complete a statement, and as fully executed a vision as this famously restless artist has offered: a timeless and timely evocation of the higher dream.
“Content To Point The Way” offers fans the long-awaited return of the traditional timeless country that Daniel Romano became known for on albums such as Sleep Beneath The Willow, Come Cry With Me, and If I’ve Only One Time Asking, but here elevated by his current group The Outfit, world’s finest purveyors of musical skill and vibe. Stunning wordplay, timeless songwriting, and musical brilliance combine on one of Daniel Romano’s most popular releases.
