One year after the release of his double single Heavy Focus, Christian Sean returns with Art Therapy, another two-track mini EP. Art Therapy features Alabama, a lush, synthy track that builds to a beat-driven singalong, and Horses, a timeless, less-than-two-minutes acoustic number.
Alabama and Horses are available on all music services.
A live session of Alabama and 2018’s Suez can be viewed on YouTube.
The two singles were written and composed by Christian, recorded at Greenroom Studios in Montreal and mixed by Francis Major. They showcase the artist’s unique knack for melodies, his impressive vocal range and brilliant instrumentation. Alabama tells the story of someone about to leave the love of their life because they can’t accept them for who they are. This is song is deeply personal, Christian explains. Putting it to tape was a very cathartic experience, and I truly hope that energy permeates the recording. Horses was inspired by a passage about success from the ancient Chinese book the Tao Te Ching. It reminded me that there is a natural justice for those who strive for success with impure motives. Making art can seem like a noble thing to do with one’s life, but it can quickly become a source of deep sorrow if your love is lost in the process, he reveals.
