Juan Wauters will release new album ‘Wandering Rebel’ on June 2nd.
The Uruguay born songwriter returns this Spring, with plans for a new album. His sixth to date, ‘Wandering Rebel’ will be released on Captured Tracks, and features close friends (and Clash favourites) such as Frankie Cosmos, Y La Bamba, and Zoe Gotusso.
Out on June 2nd, the new album is led by ‘Milanesa al Pan’, which touches on his familiar brand of breezy indie folk. Few do it better, though, and Juan Wauters is able to blend surrealistic aspects with melodies dappled in light.
Juan Wauters says…
‘Milanesa al Pan’ was written in Cabo Polonio, Uruguay in December 2020. I had recently left NYC and wanted to do some songwriting. I had access to a place in Cabo Polonio for a few weeks and I thought it would be a great setting to write some music. This town is very remote: behind sand dunes, on the tip of a peninsula into the ocean.
There’s no electricity or running water there, so there were no distractions but nature and the place itself. This particular song describes a day in which I was expecting a visit, the following day, from my beloved girlfriend. The planning for the visit and the emotions around the upcoming encounter are described in the song. The energy and the rhythm of the song are uplifting because I felt something magical was about to happen.
Tune in now.
