ACCORDING TO US (2016)
“I have been thinking a lot about the power of self-definition – the ability to decide who we want to be and then live out those choices. There is an enormous amount of liberation in finding the confidence to be who you are – whether that refers to fashion, gender, sexuality, politics, spirituality, whatever expression you choose. I tried to organize these songs around that idea, honesty and celebration. This is who we are, according to us.”
And thus it was written and ever shall be in McKeown’s signature style. The 6 songs of ACCORDING TO US use the intimate and personal expressions of gospel, jazz and hip-hop to spread the word. Limited edition package includes a letterpress cover, flexi-disc 7″ single** of “THE QUEER GOSPEL” plus download card and Portable Blessing™.
*ACCORDING TO US is available on CD with MIRRORS BREAK BACK
**remember getting a playable record in a magazine or off the back of your cereal box? that’s a flexi!
