Devon Welsh Announces Solo Album Dream Songs With “By the Daylight”

Former Majical Cloudz frontman Devon Welsh has a gift for transmuting earthly uncertainties into sincere, understated song, and today he’s announced his first solo album, Dream Songs, which arrives August 24. It’s set to include the Montreal-based songwriter’s two recent singles, “Vampires” and “I’ll Be Your Ladder,” as well as new song and album opener “By the Daylight,” which he’s recently debuted live. Dream Songs was produced by Austin Tufts of Braids, and finds Welsh shifting from Majical Cloudz’ minimal electronic compositions to guitar, piano, and string quartet.

Resonant string arrangements and pizzicato accents carry “By the Daylight,” but it wasn’t always so, Welsh explained in a statement: “It was originally made mostly with synthesizers and had saxophone on it, and then when Austin and I started re-recording the demos it got transformed into something built almost entirely around strings. The new arrangement opened a lot of mental possibilities for what the record as a whole could be.” In a note posted to Twitter, Welsh described “By the Daylight” as exemplary of his work with Tufts and called it “probably the most fully collaborative song on the whole album.”

He also offered a reflection on his artistic motivations, positioning a title like Dream Songs closer to the realm of spiritual manifestation than sleep. “I want to love more and better, I want to surrender more, I want to live with less fear, I want to participate in healing and connecting,” he wrote. “I think I subconsciously write about the things I’m hoping for, and the songs on this album are about those desires.”
