On nine tracks, produced by Josh Kaufman, Cornfield gives the feeling of coming together, and the two, playing all the instruments on the album, create a feeling that is alive and in keeping with the improvisational spirit of making a record. Notably, could have done anything it was tracked for just six days before Cornfield returned to Canada to mix and master the project.
“This album, for me, is about connection and possibility, acceptance and hope,” Cornfield said in a statement. “It feels especially meaningful to release this music now, during this incredible and exciting time of change in my life.”
The video for “You and Me” was animated by Ben Sloan and goes perfectly with the tender, euphonious tone.
