Tashi Wada Announces What Is Not Strange?

Introducing Tashi Wada’s What Is Not Strange?, the first full-length solo album by the Los Angeles-based composer, and his most far-reaching and impassioned music to date. Written and recorded over a period that encompassed the death of his father and the birth of his daughter, the album sees Wada reflecting inward to explore broad narratives—being alive, mortality, finding one’s place in the world—through new modes of ecstatic, song-based expression.

Today we share “Grand Trine,” featuring Julia Holter and the ensemble of Dev Hoff, Ezra Buchla, and Corey Fogel, who accompany wada on the journey of What Is Not Strange? The double LP edition of the album, pressed on audiophile black vinyl by RTI and packaged in a deluxe gatefold jacket printed by Dorado Music Packaging, is available now for pre-order. A custom tenugui towel was produced for the Artist Edition of vinyl, and a Japanese import CD edition arrives via Plancha.
