Premiering the Standing Under Bright Lights lead single last week, American Songwriter reveals that "'The Son of Hannah' is an intimate reflection on keeping faith in moments of great despair…Propelled by a deeper turmoil, Foster maneuvers from his delicately sinister oration into something more captivatingly honest, and raw, sorely declaring He left me with nothing / No words, no direction to set myself in / But he gave me everything I've ever needed…Taught me to feed a spirit of my own / To carry my voice beyond morning views / And to leave the past behind."
"The Son of Hannah" is also featured on multiple Spotify Playlists, including Loudwire's "Weekly Wire-This Week's Best Songs," "Best Of Rock" (along with Foo Fighters, Five Finger Death Punch, Adelitas Way, Breaking Benjamin and more), plus Post Rock, Dark Folk, Progressive, Noise Rock, Sad songs for hopeful nights and others.
From Montreal and now residing in the highlands of Virginia, Foster's full production, 11-piece band concert, Standing Under Bright Lights, was originally set to release October 8, 2020, which would have been his late father's birthday. Instead, Foster decided to utilize the extra time the worldwide pandemic would give him to produce the recording and concert film.
The resulting project features "The Son of Hannah" along with every song from AHF's debut solo album, Windows in the Sky, which hit No. 1 multiple times on the Billboard Canadian Albums chart, staying in the Top 40 on the chart for a full year after its release. The songs from this celebrated album were re-invented for the live recording as the band performed along with a movie projection produced by Foster.
