“Late Night Howling" represents Chatburn letting go of engrained ideals that he has faced both musically and as a modern man. While remaining truthful and honest with his production references from 70’s soul music to modern hip hop, a will to align his musical output with how he lives and the things which influence him in day-to-day life led to collaborations with a talented selection of musicians and visual artists to create the record.
The visual aesthetic was meticulously curated as a fundamental element of this album as a whole. Chatburn enlisted creative director and photographer Shari Annabell Marks, and artistic director and stylist Youka Snell and to carry out a cohesive series of images which both align with the music and stand alone as vivid visual expressions.
“I viewed this album as a departure from my debut on “Faible”, which I would say was a lot more introspective of embracing all emotions while perhaps being vague to the listener at times. “Late Night Howling” really is a progression of opening up and developing and working on myself as a human being to a point where I am comfortable playing and having more fun with my persona and who I am. Basically I am who I choose to be when creating music or living, it is the subconscious’ voice.” - James Chatburn
