ALBUM RELEASE // Mark McGuire’s ‘Along The Way’ Out Now, Live Dates Start at SXSW In March



Mark McGuire‘s new album Along The Way is out now worldwide. Previously a member of trio Emeralds, Mark delivers a new concept album of personal reflection and enlightenment.

Listen to some tracks from the new album including a new remix by CFCF and others by Shinji, Prins Thomas [Lindstrom collaborator] or here on our Soundcloud page.

On Along The Way, McGuire writes in the liner notes,
“This story is an odyssey through the vast, unknown regions of the mind…the endless unfolding of psychological landscapes, leading to perpetual discoveries and expansions, in a genuinely emergent and infinite world of worlds.” Further he writes “[the new album] is not a critique, it is not instructional, nor is it a proclamation that I believe I have gone through this journey and succeeded, not by a long shot. It is, however, a journey that I truly believe is offered to every man and woman who has ever lived, through the lightness that breathes through your heart when you feel the true touch of life, and the light of love.”

Get Along The Way now through SC Distribution, iTunes, Amazon and your local record store.

Early reviews on Along The Way:

- THE 405 | 8/10

“he [Mark] approaches it with a curiosity of spirit that makes ‘Along The Way’ a captivating and nourishing listen”

- NME

Mark’s Dead Oceans debut Along The Way will be delivered to your aural cavities February 4th, 2014. Today, he releases a second single from the album entitled “In Search of the Miraculous” [via Rolling Stone premiere yesterday] and a remix from producer Shinji (DMBQ, Boredoms). On the meaning behind the second single, Mark explains:

“It’s about a person falling in love with knowledge and following that love wherever it takes him in search of truth and understanding of himself and the world…The main mantra of the song is, ‘All that we know is only learned,’ implying that all knowledge created and discovered by man is continuously open to re-evaluation and can always grow and change, which basically leaves reality open to all possibilities”

Listen and watch a psychedelic visual made by Mark to the single above and then check out Shinji‘s remix here on Soundcloud with the accompanying visual on our YouTube page here.

Pre-order Along The Way now through SC Distribution, iTunes, Amazon and your local record store.
