Stream: Passion Pit’s new album Kindred

on April 14, 2015, 10:30am

Passion Pit’s new album Kindred hits stores on April 21st through Columbia Records. In anticipation, it’s streaming in full over via iTunes Radio.

The 10-track effort serves as the synthpop outfit’s third to date following 2012’s Gossamer. According to frontman Michael Angelakos, the LP is inspired by his own personal experiences with bipolar disorder and finds him reflecting on his new take-charge outlook on life.

Everything is autobiographical. Everything is honest. This record was written around the time when I was trying to figure out what constitutes family: who loves you, accepting love, giving love. On Manners, I was like, “I have no idea what’s going on and I wish I did but I just don’t have the answers.” Gossamer was like, “This is what happened, I’m so sorry” — acknowledging what happened but not saying that I’m going to do anything about it. Kindred is like: “I’m really trying to make this work and be better.”

I’m actively trying to improve all my relationships and my lifestyle and my way of working and interacting with people. Everything. And that’s a really hard thing to talk about because it’s embarrassing. I just desperately wanted to be happy again in a way that wasn’t forced. I wanted to feel like I accomplished something. I did this. I finished this record. I’m doing all the promo. I’m doing everything that I said I was going to do..
