Andrew Combs Announces New Album ‘Ideal Man’ out 9/20 via New West Records

Andrew Combs has announced his new album Ideal Man will be released on September 20 via New West Records. The 11-song set was produced by Sam Cohen (Kevin Morby, Benjamin Booker) and features Combs’ longtime collaborators, Drummer Dom Billet and guitarist/keyboardist/bassist Jerry Bernhardt. Watch the video for the first single “Stars Of Longing” via YouTube below…

A Dallas native, Combs has called Nashville home since 2006, but when it came time to record Ideal Man, he opted for a change, heading to Sam Cohen’s Jupiter Recordings in Brooklyn. “One of the things I really admired about Sam is that he wants to capture a moment,” says Combs. “In the past, I’ve tended to pursue a studio sound that was really polished and clean, but I wanted to do something different this time, and I knew that working with Sam would lead to more of a loose, psychedelic, spaced-out vibe. We did everything live in the studio, even my vocals, and there’s a sense of immediacy and discovery in those early takes that you can’t recreate.”

Combs worked with some of his favorite writers for the album, including Joe Henry,Dylan LeBlancJeff Trott, and Kenny Childers, but the stories he tells here are deeply personal and remarkably vulnerable. The songwriting was partly inspired by his recent fascination with painting. Combs started painting when his wife was pregnant (they welcomed a daughter in 2017).
