Dan Le Sac has released a new solo album on Bandcamp to mark the tenth anniversary of his first live show under that stage name. Titled ‘Cherished, Overthrown’, the album compiles eleven tracks started throughout that decade but never completed, until now.

“In that time, I wrote hundreds of songs that you’ll never hear, incomplete pieces, tracks overthrown by more pertinent projects, ideas that never quite found their solidity, sketches without a home”, he says. “90% of this work I’m happy for no one to ever hear. I’m glad to leave them standing in silence on my learning curve. But some I cherish too much to leave unheard, some pull me back to tweak and change long after I should have put them to bed”.

“What do you do with a body of work nagging you and the anniversary of the most important day of your life threatening to pass unmarked?” he continues. “My only answer is to combine the two. So today that is what I’m doing. I’ve fleshed out these ideas, made them something new, I’ve given them the love they need to be complete, and now I’m giving them to you”.

The album is up on Bandcamp for free or whatever price you see fit. Stream and download it here.
