Info: Even as bandleader A.C. Newman embraces a collaborative spirit more than ever, Continue as a Guest is a testament to his ability to discover new artistic sides of himself.
“I started out as a songwriter more than as a singer, but at some point, you have to sing
your own songs. For a long time, I felt like the idea of changing asong because I couldn’t hit a note wasn’t okay—I could just get someone else to singit. But I’m learning now that my songs can actually be a lot more malleable than Ithought.” And it’s in that spirit that Continue as a Guest sounds like a thrilling path forward for The New Pornographers, with songs that generate a contagious feeling of excitement for the future as well.
