This fall tour is in support of his new album, which was released on May 4. The 13-track album was unique for Alejandro Rose-Garcia.
“I’ve never worked like this before, but I went into the record with the idea of having a thesis statement of what I wanted to get across,” Rose-Garcia explains. “And the place that I got at was that I wanted it to be vaguely Wizard of Oz-themed, and I wanted it to be hectic and a little uncomfortable, like what I refer to as the Big Five Disney cartoons: Pinocchio, Fantasia, Snow White, Dumbo and Bambi.”
“All those movies are terrifying — some of the most stressful movies I’ve ever seen. So I started with this Wizard of Oz thing — ‘Tin Man’ that has obvious allusions to that-and the idea of black-and-white to color.”
