Christopher Paul Stelling Gives Details About Debut Album

Christopher Stelling’s full-length debut, Songs Of Praise and Scorn, isn’t set to come out until early next year, but that hasn’t stopped the Brooklyn-based singer/songwriter for giving up a few details about the album. Stelling will be heading south to Louisville to begin recording later this summer at Funeral Home Studios with Wax Fang’s Kevin Ratterman, who recently worked with My Morning Jacket on their latest release Circuital.

“I find the recording process to be a lot like embalming, a preservation if you will…so, I figured an actual 100 year old funeral home was a perfect place to record,” Stelling says of the unique recording location. To tide fans over until Songs release, Stelling has released a new video for the track “Strange Darkness,” directed by John Albercio and shot in Brooklyn’s Prospect Park.

Fans can also catch him live at the Mecca Lecca Northside Festival showcase, and opening for  William Elliot Whitmore at Mercury Lounge in NYC on July 19th. View his other live dates and watch the clip for “Strange Darkness” below.
