Who says I’d rather be “down here in hell with you” than in heaven with someone else and actually means it?! Van effin’ Hunt that’s who! The artist pulled a D’Angelo on us, taking a half-decade long reprieve from the music industry, but he’s back with his first full length album What Were You Hoping For?, which officially drops tomorrow. The album is a hodge-podge of musical genres all interwoven to form an 11-track album that’s quintessential Van. His biography describes the LP as “day-glo psychedelic soul” with a dab of punk, which honestly may be the best way to categorize it. Whatever you want to call it, it’s plain ‘ole good music. Van Hunt is not afraid to go there, and experiment with various musical genres and styles. “I want the record to be disruptive,” says Van about the album. It looks like he accomplishes just that with his latest. Take a listen to “Eyes Like Pearls,” and read the track listing after the jump.
