SINGER-SONGWRITER Keith Human’s “Leave Your Baggage By The Door” is out now on all major streaming and digital download platforms including Spotify, Apple Music, and Bandcamp.
“Leave Your Baggage By The Door” is a cinematic musical journey worth indulging in from Keith Human’s upcoming album “Boringly Wild” with an accompanying B-side track “Ain’t Love Cruel?” The track reflects a heavy Britpop influence while still showcasing Keith’s unique folk sensibilities. It was produced by Bobbi Olvido (Kubra Commander, Sunday Sunday) while the mixing and mastering was done at Tiny Crab Room. Tim Williams (Kubra Commander, Capital Dreams) also helped with the drums, recorded at House of Indies, while Justine Klouie Yu did background vocals.
The songs and the forthcoming album were inspired by a late-night chat between Keith and his friends about the mundane aspects of their lives prior to the pandemic. It includes songs about love frustrations, meeting someone new at a bar, the benefits and drawbacks of flirting with a stranger, kinky people, and, most importantly, people he refers to as friends. “Boringly Wild” is essentially a coming-of-age record.
Keith created the album art as well. He photographed a glimpse of the hedonistic lifestyle he and his friends would have every night. With debut track “Leave Your Baggage By The Door,” the message he really wants to convey is how love would be so much simpler if none of us demanded more.
“You can’t rush on feeling at home and getting too comfortable inside that room. That is why there is a need to leave your baggage first before settling in. That is where the idea of the song came from and that’s why it’s called ‘Leave Your Baggage By The Door.’” (PR)
