What So Not announced Not All The Beautiful Things LP out March 9th via Counter Records/Hear new single “Stuck In Orbit”

Australia’s What So Not announced his long awaited debut album Not All The Beautiful Things
out March 9th via Counter Records featuring frequent collaborator Skrillex, legendary rock lords Toto, plus San Holo and SLUMBERJACK to name only a few. Over three years in the making, Not All the Beautiful Things is about transformation and metamorphosis, a culmination of everything the Australian-born artist has been working towards as he’s built his reputation as one of the most innovative producers in the game, garnering over 455 million combined streams in the process. More than an album, it’s a fully realized artistic statement in which What So Not is in full control of every aspect, from the stage design and visuals to the music videos and merchandise. “I didn’t want to put anything out that doesn’t cohesively match the essence of the songs,” explains the man behind it all.

What So Not enlisted some friends to help represent the many moods and voices of the project. The 12-track album will include his last single “Be Ok Again” featuring former Silverchair frontman Daniel Johns as well as his brand new single “Stuck In Orbit” which has just dropped today – featuring vocals by BUOY and co-written by Jono Ma (of Jagwar Ma).
Listen to “Stuck In Orbit”

Of “Stuck In Orbit” What So Not says: “This song started as a jam with Jono Ma (Jagwar Ma) in his film scoring studio. The vocals began as a sketch of adlibs from BUOY with only two words, drawn out across the verse “I ov-er comp-en-sate”. That set the tone for the entire piece; each word delivered with much thought and consideration. I wrote the next phase of the lyrics whilst ‘stuck in transit’. I had just reached a point of feeling settled in a special place with amazing people around me when (as usual) I had to pack up my life and jump from city to city for months on end. At the beginning of the journey a British Airways’ system crash left me stranded for a night sitting alone staring at a hotel wall. The circumstances compounded and I channeled the frustration and came up with the lines for and around “Stuck in Orbit”. Things came full circle as on this very trip I ended up crossing paths with Jono multiple times, jamming further on ideas for the song and when I finally returned, brainstormed the final elements of the vocal with Winona Oak and BUOY.
