Catharsis

I released my 14th album, called Catharsis, in December 2015. Since then, I’ve received many accolades on it. I am honored to have worked with so many amazing artists that helped elevate the record to something I’m really really proud of. One of them, Jonathan Brown, provided vocals on two of the songs. He had the following to say about Catharsis:

“I’m so honored to be a part of Abid Hussain’s fourteenth studio album. He’s an Ableton Certified Trainer, an all around musical genius, and helluva nice guy.

I can’t say enough about Catharsis. It’s just awesome music mixed really well. It’s optimistic at times, tragic at others. The emotional range of this project is sunrise wide.

Every song is a banger. t3mp0r4ry is synthy and dancy and trancy and smart. If Material Things doesn’t move you, you might be a robot. (Or maybe you’re just having a robot day. Everybody has robot days.) Track of Time slides and slinks in the sultriest and smoothest ways. Lighting reminds me of the first time I ever heard Gillean Welch. The Next Day is like looking across a desert. You can see for miles. And oh my goodness, the sound of rain in Try is such a thoughtful way to end the album. Way to go, Nebulae! Way to leave us with a big handful of hope. Oh yeah, and I almost forgot, I’m featured on Embark and When You Know You Know.”

Needless to say, I am incredibly moved by Jonathan’s kind words.
