Weeks before his 40th birthday, Belbusti will release his most fully realized and strongest album yet, Upturned in Everest (out August 16, Dead Language Records). The first single is the hand-clapping, existential rave-up Do You Know What I Mean? and features contributions from Erik Elligers (Goodnight Blue Moon), Lys Guillorn (Lys Guillorn & Her Band), and Kierstin Sieser (Tiny Ocean).

Other highlights include the dark and humorous walk on the wild side, A Weight Has Been Lifted, the perfect pop nugget Needles and Vinegar, the electroacoustic epic The Muted, and the hypnotic closer My Own Sort of Bargain.

Aside from contributions from those mentioned above, the 12 track album was written, performed, recorded, and mixed by Belbusti. It was mastered by Todd Tobias (Guided By Voices, Circus Devils). For the twelve track collection, Belbusti reflects on aging, loss, love, and navigating the 21st Century as an artist who began his work in the 20th.

Belbusti frantically worked on the album for about a year in his new home studio, which is a shed/art studio in his back yard in Guilford, CT. In between recording, he watched baseball, painted approximately 100 paintings, and ruminated on the deaths of several of his songwriting peers. Explains Belbusti, I feel thankful to be here making the work I want to make. A long time ago, I made my own sort of bargain with something, somewhere. I promised to behave and to be kind as long as I would always be able to write songs until my days were done. Something like that. So far, so good.

New Haven's Mercy Choir is the musical outlet of singer-songwriter, poet, and painter Paul Belbusti. Since the inception of his project in the mid-2000s, Belbusti has been exceptionally prolific with his main act (never mind his work as one-half of the experimental group Rivener), releasing of albums and EPs that dabble in various genres like Americana, baroque pop, and lo-fi experimentation.
