Lavender Days [Exclusive Orange]
Lavender Days explores themes of loss and heartache...
The album was produced by Caamp and Beatriz Artola, who is known for his work with Fleet Foxes, Adele and Sharon Van Etten and features additional production by Brad Cook, who is known for his work with Waxahatchee and Snail Mail. The first recordings were tracked at Sylvan Esso’s private studio outside of Durham, N.C. in February of 2021, where they welcomed friends Nathaniel Rateliff and Waxahatchee’s Katie Crutchfield to add additional vocals. The record was wrapped at Caamp’s home studio in their hometown of Columbus, Ohio.
Lavender Days explores themes of loss and heartache inspired by Caamp’s lead singer Taylor Meier’s experience of losing a “great love, a great dog, his livelihood, his sanity” and all familiarity during the pandemic. The experience placed him back at home to settle into and familiarize himself with his roots and small pleasures.
