Recorded in Toronto, Los Angeles and Shreveport with drummer Brian Blade and pianist Garth Hudson, Here Is What Is features a collection of viscerally powerful and beautiful new tracks.
From the simple “I Like That” to the roaring rendition of “This May Be The Last Time” led by Brian Blade’s father and his Zion Baptist Church, Here Is What Is captures Lanois’ signature musical sensibilities and songwriting abilities across a broad spectrum of musical genres.
The film Here Is What Is, debuted at the 2007 Toronto Film Festival, and will make its U.S. premiere at SXSW on March 9. Directed by Adam Vollick, Adam Samuels and Lanois, the documentary captures the art of making a record and gives an exclusive look over Lanois’ shoulder in the recording studio, something music fans and scholars have longed for – for more than twenty years.
Lanois began his career with an early ‘80s apprenticeship with Brian Eno, making some of the most influential avant garde music of all time. After producing artists such as Bob Dylan (Time Out of Mind), Peter Gabriel (So) and U2, including The Joshua Tree, which is celebrating its 20th anniversary, Lanois released his third solo album Shine, which reveals a remarkable range of sounds, emotions and approaches to music making. The album followed his hotly anticipated 1989 solo debut Acadie and the 1993 release For The Beauty of Wynona. Lanois’ entire catalog of solo work, including Here Is What Is, is available at redfloorrecords.com.
