Take a deep breath in and exhale the pent-up energy because Spencer Brown’s third album, Equanimity, has officially arrived!
Equanimity may be the name of Spencer Brown‘s brand new album on his personal imprint, diviine, but it’s impossible to remain composed in a moment like this! It’s a project that allowed Spencer to shine a spotlight on his soul while he dealt with a chaotic world around him. They say when it rains, it pours, and this statement was all too real for the beloved producer, losing his Grandmother, breaking up with his lover, and dealing with the trauma of a global pandemic and his OCD, all while coming out and coming into his own as part of the rainbow community…
As he began to feel the shift in his psyche, Spencer Brown knew that he had to search out the knowledge of others to take his growth to the next level. So, he took the hand of a companion in his inner circle, which changed his outlook on life. “During this period, a friend introduced me to the concept of equanimity, describing it as “calmness and composure, especially in a difficult situation.” He went on to say, “This was the exact skill I had unknowingly been trying to find. But like a muscle, it takes time to engrain deep strength in the core. In reality, peace exists around us if we can stay unaffected by the noise.”
This brings us to the creation of Equanimity, an 11-track expression of peace that took four years to complete. During its development, Spencer Brown moved out of his angst and into his power, and he simply couldn’t wait to share his progress with the world. He did this by unloading a few of Equanimity‘s singles before the full release. These included “Awu Wemadoda,” with Wilt Claybourne and Ladysmith Black Mambazo, followed by “20ms” with Qrion, and a double drop that included “SF to Córdoba” with Ezequiel Arias and “Curve.”
Today, Spencer Brown circles back with another flock of friends by his side, a star-studded list that includes ilan Bluestone, Luttrell, Late Night Shri, and Above & Beyond‘s Paavo Siljamäki, who takes his P.O.S. alias for a spin. The fresh offerings provided will help the listener forge their own path to nirvana, specifically through the gentle, introspective stylings of “Amber Leaf,” “Papi’s Cenote,” and “Afterparty Healing.”
There’s even space for your happy feet to get a little wild on Equnimity, as energetic uplifters “Loccou” and “Good Times” set the pace. With positivity cruising, some subtle debauchery shouldn’t knock us off track, so Spencer spices things up with “Masonic & Webster” and “Little Wane” to make this ride one that feels complete.
It’s time to bring Equanimity into your life! Listen to the album on Spotify or your preferred platform, and make sure to grab tickets to Spencer Brown’s album tour to catch these tracks in a live setting.
