Today Page McConnell and Phish’s Trey Anastasio announced that they have a new album titled January, will be released later this week on Friday March 10 via JEMP Records. The project will be released exclusively digitally, and the first song on the deal, “Dancing in Midair,” can be enjoyed now.
The album is made up of eight original tracks composed by the duo and serves as a follow-up to Decemberwhich served as an acoustic reinterpretation of the Phish songs. January was recorded and produced in January 2023 at Trout Studios in Brooklyn, NY, by Bryce Goggin. The album features McConnell on keyboards and vocals and Anastasio on guitars, drums, bass, and vocals.
“We just literally walked into the studio with an acoustic guitar and a couple of synths,” Anastasio said in an interview on SiriusXM’s Phish Radio. “The songs are mysterious. They sound different. It was limiting, in a big way.”
