Jeff Ament - "I Should Be Outside"
Today Jeff Ament released his fourth solo album titled, I Should Be Outside.
This project came about as a result of the isolation surrounding
the Covid-19 pandemic:"At the front of the pandemic, my days were
centered around the pathway between my art table and the studio,"
explains Ament. "It only made sense to combine the two with this group
of songs, all the while wishing I was outside with my friends or playing
in some far away land with my bandmates, anywhere not inside my house.
Most of the songs and all of the paintings started with an early morning
sketch, a group
of words, or a piano or guitar riff, with the idea that I would largely finish one and/or the other every day."
