Alternative Phenom Alex Henry Foster Releases "Winter Is Coming In"

Song Reveals Foster's Hopeful Wrestling With His Own Broken Childhood, Abuse, Depression, Thoughts Of Suicide; Rolling Stone Calls Lead Single "Simply Fascinating"; Live Album / Film Standing Under Bright Lights Releases April 16
NASHVILLE, Tenn. - March 12, 2021 - PRLog -- Alternative phenom Alex Henry Foster releases today (March. 12) the second video/single, "Winter Is Coming In," from his live triple-vinyl / double-CD and concert film Standing Under Bright Lights that is set to release April 16 and available to preorder ( now from Hopeful Tragedy Records. The project was recorded live in front of a sold out Club Soda (July 2019) while Foster headlined the Montreal International Jazz Festival.

Filled with an intense, sprechstimme-driven opening followed by hopeful-expressed lyrics sung amidst a wash of instrumentation that melt into a quiet, peaceful resonance, Foster wrote "Winter Is Coming In" after wrestling with his own broken childhood, abuses of which he has been a victim, functional depression and thoughts of taking his own life.

"The amount of time I must have spent musing, contemplating, struggling and raging for that song…I was obsessed with 'authenticity,' the measure of consciousness it requires to be honest, the nature of redemption, the meaning of being free, contrition, confession, the difference between hope and truth," Foster shares. He realized the key to the song "wasn't about understanding the concept of confession and faith…it was allowing those words to loudly carry a burden I was usually holding in the loneliest of all silences…"

The song's companion video is featured this week by Louder Than War, Rebel Noise and Glide Magazine (, which calls the track "a vivacious take that is transcending with cryptic electricity that spirals and unravels serendipitously." The magazine also labels Foster a "creative force" that "has helped transcend post-rock into a realm of prog possibilities encompassing the world where Steven Wilson and Porcupine Tree meet Godspeed You! Black Emperor."

"Winter Is Coming In" follows Foster's release of lead single "The Son of Hannah (," which was featured by American Songwriter and labeled "simply fascinating" by a Rolling Stone playlist. It also gathered video premiers by both BrooklynVegan and Prog Magazine.

Recently featured by Montreal Rocks and named as one of Sound Vapors' top 5 all-time favorite interviews," Foster is from Montreal and now resides in the highlands of Virginia. His full production, 11-piece band concert, Standing Under Bright Lights, was named one of the top five events not to be missed by Canada's national TV/Radio broadcaster CBC.
