Andrew Combs has announced his fifth studio album entitled Sundays, due out on August 19th via Tone Tree. Recorded entirely in mono, the album was collaboratively produced by Combs and Jordan Lehning (Caitlin Rose, Caroline Spence, Rodney Crowell) with additional arrangements from Dominic Billett (drums for Erin Rae, Julia Jacklin, Courtney Marie Andrews). Combs has shared the album’s first single “(God)less,” a track equally existential as it is optimistic about the sanctity of the human experience. The song comes alongside a music video directed by Austin Leih, exploring the creepy-crawly and glowing underside of a forest’s topsoil.

“‘(God)less’ is about how our flawed human existence, even in its most harsh and ugly form, can look beautiful, worthy, and god-like,” explains Combs. “The message of the lyrics felt like a great album opener because, at its core, the record is about slowing down and finding grace and importance in the chaos of the world right now.”

Written on the heels of a mental breakdown Combs had at Christmas of 2020—amid the long, monotonous grind of an ongoing global pandemic—Sundays came together in Nashville in early 2021. In the wake of this debilitating psychological break, Combs turned to the practice of transcendental meditation to find balance and to — in the words of director David Lynch — “catch the big fish.” Alongside his collaborators Lehning and Billett, Combs would go into the studio every Sunday, the goal being to capture a song he had penned the previous week as he plumbed the depths of his own heart and mind.
