LISTEN: Avi Kaplan Teams Up With Joy Williams for Hauntingly Beautiful ‘All Is Well’
Avi Kaplan's latest single "All Is Well" is a haunting and spiritual duet with Joy Williams that will stick with you. The track is from Kaplan's upcoming solo album Floating on a Dream, due out May 20, which was produced by Shooter Jennings and mixed by Trina Shoemaker.
Kaplan, a former member of a cappella group Pentatonix, released his first solo EP, I'll Get By, in 2020. Like his previously released single “First Place I Go,” Kaplan's Floating on a Dream heads in a western, cinematic direction. During the production of the album, Jennings says he was motivated by Kaplan’s respect for classic sounds.
“I always know it’s going to be a good process in the studio when I’m working with somebody who really loves music, but also really adores the music that has come before,” Jennings said in a statement. “We both collect music and we’re inspired by it. Avi is an amazing singer and songwriter, this album is Ennio Morricone meets Bill Withers.”
