Trust Fund drops new album Bringing the Backline

Bringing the Backline, Trust Fund

Trust Fund, aka Ellis Jones, has released the follow-up to 2016’s We Have Always Lived in the Harolds.

Comprised of 10 tracks, the album includes the breakup single Carson McCullers. News of Jones’ fifth studio album was announced in May this year.

On the Bandcamp page, Jones describes the nature of the album as containing “lyrics touching upon the now-classic TF themes of listlessness, disavowal, and the fetishisation of regret, with details specific enough to feel frank and confessional, yet non-specific enough to allow for the listener to substitute in their own life experiences”. On the sound of the album, he adds that the LP is a “full and uncompromising turn towards adult-oriented rock, including 78 seconds of audible clarinet”.

Last year, Frank Ocean included the Trust Fund track Would That Be An Adventure? on blonded RADIO’s fifth instalment.
