MUSIC NEWS: 10 Years Share Alternate Versions of ‘Wasteland’ and ‘The Unknown’
10 Years have announced their new album Deconstructed is set for release on 4th March 2022 via Mascot Records/Mascot Label Group and will feature 19 alternate versions of tracks from the band’s back catalogue.
Guitarist Brian Vodinh says: “The idea for DECONSTRUCTED started out as just an acoustic performance. Myself and Matt with acoustic guitars, and nothing beyond that in terms of instrumentation. Then, as I was working on adapting some of the songs to an acoustic environment, I started getting these thoughts, like, ‘What if this was played on a piano instead?!’ Then once we opened the door to further instrumentation things spiraled out of control quickly, and it became one of the most challenging, yet most gratifying projects we have taken on. DECONSTRUCTED allows the listener to discover this list of songs all over again, in a new way.”
Whilst vocalist Jesse Hasek adds: “The DECONSTRUCTED versions of these songs really hit me in an emotional way. It felt different to sing over the orchestrations that Brian and Matt had created for these. It felt really intimate, and like they had really carved a path for where my voice was to sit on those arrangements. I hope people can listen to these versions and find the spirit in them that we were trying to convey.”
To celebrate the announcement, they have shared new takes on Wasteland and The Unknown.
