Slaine - The Things We Can't Forgive (Album)
The Multi-Talented Bostonian Delivers His Most Vulnerable Album to Date
By: AR Classic Records/Perfect Time Music Group
And now, Slaine releases his most visceral album to date with The Things We Can't Forgive. It's a lyrically-charged journey that touches on love, sex, heartbreak, narcissism, trauma, betrayal, addiction, forgiveness and recovery. The ten track LP is produced primarily by his frequent collaborator and fellow Bostonian, The Arcitype, who helps build a foundation of rich instrumentation. Additional production is provided by Statik Selektah who created the album's title track.
The record is a dark trip into his spiraling whirlwind of mental obsession, which unfolds on highlights like "Revolver," "Legend of the Fall," and "When the War Ends." Here's how Slaine described his mindset creating these tracks: "There I was: six years sober, having beat my drug and alcohol addiction, losing 20 lbs in a single month, unable to eat, unable to sleep, can't get out of bed, trying to unravel what happened," he says. "I was afraid that if I didn't get this shit out of my system, I might get high again."
The result is an honest depiction of love, loss, jealousy, anger and grief that anyone who's been through an earth-shattering heartbreak will recognize it in the pit of their stomach. But what really makes this record special is the duality found in the self-examination. This pairing is the driving force behind Slaine's ultimate question: "What are these things we can't forgive?"
To accompany the album's release, Slaine is sharing his self-directed video for "When the War Ends (feat. ILL BILL)," which includes photography and editing by Christian Hardy. The cinematic visuals center on a troubled, younger version of Slaine (Justin Thoms), who ultimately confronts his future self with potentially stirring results.
