Rolling Stone Premieres Letts’ New Song “Emeralds,” Hold Fast Now Available for Pre-Order

Letts’ new song “Emeralds” premieres today via Rolling Stone! “Emeralds” comes from Letts’ forthcoming album, Hold Fast, produced by friend and collaborator Marcus Mumford. The debut LP will be released on February 17, 2015, on Community Music/Vagrant and is now available for pre-order on iTunes with instant downloads of “Emeralds,” “Matches,” and “Charles de Gaulle.”

About the recording process, Marcus Mumford noted, “it wasn't as different as I thought it was going to be because we're always involved in the production of our records. It just felt like being in the studio with your friends – which we do all the time.” Letts recalled the completely idyllic sessions, “We were surrounded by some of the most beautiful souls I have ever known. The most scenic and inspiring countryside, better than I could ever paint or imagine. A huge sense of love and trust.”

London-born Christian Letts returned to his native countryside to record Hold Fast. Other friends from their respective bands (Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros and Mumford and Sons) joined them at the farm, where, over the course of two consecutive Januaries, they crafted the ten tracks that comprise the album. The release will coincide with a series of art exhibits of Letts’ paintings and watercolors throughout the United States and Europe.

Christian Letts Announces Solo Project “Letts”, Debut Album to be Released February 17

London-born Christian Letts returned to his native countryside to record his first LP, Hold Fast, with his friend and collaborator Marcus Mumford who produced the record. Hold Fast will be released on February 17, 2015, on Community Music/Vagrant Records. Other friends from their respective bands (Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros and Mumford and Sons) joined them at the farm, where, over the course of two consecutive Januaries, they crafted the ten tracks that comprise Hold Fast. The release will coincide with a series of art exhibits of Letts’ paintings and watercolors throughout the United States and Europe. For the full album track-listing, see below.

His first offering from Hold Fast, “Charles de Gaulle” is a love story about beginnings in unexpected places. A chance encounter in the Paris airport, where two lives “became a swirl.” Listen to the track below.

Letts is a songwriter, singer, painter and sculptor. Across all mediums there is a common theme of overcoming darkness. The sea, the sky, the countryside, the people within and their strengths, weaknesses, successes and failures. Spirits and guardian angels, recurring dreams, the unseen forces that silently sway. He explores himself alongside and within these elements on Hold Fast. 


Hold Fast Track Listing:
01. The Keeper
02. Charles de Gaulle
03. The Oath
04. Boxing Day
05. Copper Bells
06. La Mer
07. Emeralds
08. Skipping Stones
09. Twenty Seven Arrows
10. Matches
