Julien Chang announces debut album, Jules, shares single Butterflies From Monaco

Julien Chang has announced his debut album, Jules, set for release Friday 11th October. 

A Baltimore native, currently studying at university, Julien surprised his peers when he began quietly self-releasing music during his senior year of high school. “The record was brought to life by uncertainty and experimentation, just like most everything else in life is during the summer before senior year,” he explains. “Even in the last weeks of recording, I was unsure of what kind of album it would turn out to be, but I think that was the point of making it - to follow inspirations indiscriminately and to whatever extent I felt.” The self-produced, self-recorded and almost entirely self-performed debut album shows Julien fusing infectious pop melodies and experimental psych-rock with progressive jazz improvisation and sophisticated classical construction, all while spanning multiple instruments. Now Jules will get a proper release.

Pre-order it on limited edition vinyl and CD here

 

Alongside the album announcement, Julien shares a new track “Butterflies from Monaco.” Coloured by the earthy textures of American blues and roots and inspired by the concept of the butterfly effect, “Butterflies from Monaco” can be heard now via The FADER.

 

Julien will embark on his first ever tour later this year, with dates including two London shows at Bermondsey Social Club on October 28 and Servant Jazz Quarters on October 29, and a set at Brooklyn’s Baby’s All Right. All dates are listed below and tickets are available from julienchangmusic.com.
