Dinner, the alter-ego of LA-based Danish producer Anders Rhedin, is back with his second full-length New Work, out on September 8! For his new album, Rhedin battled his own perfectionism by pushing himself to collaborate more, think less, and work at a high pace throughout a short and intense period of late-night recording sessions. New Work features collaborations with artists like Charlie Hilton of Blouse and Sean Nicholas Savage.
Dinner released the album’s first single “Un-American Woman” today with a video shot in Las Vegas that features Mac DeMarco’s brother Hank dancing with his ballet troupe.
In writing “Un-American Woman” (and much of the album), Rhedin was inspired by William Blake’s Proverbs of Hell. “‘Un-American Woman’ is a song I wrote just before I stopped going out, just before I stopped sleeping around with women,” he says. “The song seems to be about disillusionment and a fear of being stuck in a certain lifestyle. But it also touches upon the potential transformational aspects of ‘bad things.’ Nothing’s black or white, good or bad. There is just lifeforce moving. A constant movement. ‘The road of excess leads to the palace of wisdom,’ in the words of Blake. I lifted that line for the song, of course.”
Dinner’s forthcoming album, New Work, is out September 8th, 2017 on Captured Tracks. Directed by Andrew van Baal
