Keaton Henson - Dear... (Limited Edition Version)
Keaton Henson - Dear... Ltd
CD Album
London native Keaton Henson has been writing music in secret since the age of twelve. While building a reputation as an artist and illustrator, Keaton was quietly amassing a plethora of introspective songs, not even sharing them with friends or family. His music, informed by isolation, deals with the themes of anxiety and lost love. While the openness of his lyrics can be somewhat unsettling, the simple melodies and frank delivery allow the listener the kind of insight that can make music so rewarding. For the past few months, his songs and homemade music videos have been circulating on the internet and gaining momentum, prompting him to create his first album.

Titled "Dear...", the album collects ten of his most personal songs which were recorded in a makeshift studio in his own home. The packaging for the first 120 albums have been hand-made by Keaton himself, with original drawings on each unique sleeve (he simply couldn’t settle on one design). These limited edition covers mirror the individuality and intimacy of his music. The title of the album directly addresses those who are listening to it. This, combined with his rare public appearances keep the album wholly personal to the listener, something that he feels is missing from music today.
