Incubus' Brandon Boyd Shares 'A Better Universe'

Incubus frontman Brandon Boyd has released a music video for his new single "A Better Universe", which comes from his forthcoming solo album, "Echoes And Cocoons". Brandon had this to say about the song, "I suppose I have understood for much of my life that it's through communication and cooperation that we can potentially arrive at a place that is clearer than where we came from. Being in a band for 30 years now has shown me, for better or for worse, so much about what it is to be in a 'chosen' family dynamic. We have our moments of celebration, where we clink glasses, cheer and embrace around shared accomplishments. Then we do our very best to lean into one another around the inevitable moments when things don't go according to plan and we are asked to test our capacities for adaptation. This part is more the rule than it is the exception, and if a family dynamic doesn't learn how to adapt around swiftly changing landscapes they'll be lost in the woods and destined to malfunction and ultimately fade into obscurity. The moments between the peaks and the valleys are of equal importance and I've learned over the decades that these areas of stasis are just as crucial to familiarize oneself with.

ECHOES AND COCOONS: Brandon Boyd On Breathing Life Into His Captivating New Solo Album

Brandon Boyd has always been a searcher. His journey as a multi-disciplinary artist (and legendry frontman of Incubus) has taken him to all corners of the globe and exposed him to a vast array of people and cultures. Those experiences, which he holds close to his heart, have always served as the fuel for his creative fire. So, not surprisingly, the onset of the global pandemic also managed to leave a mark on his eclectic body of work, no matter the medium. During those dark days, the muse came calling. It wasn’t long before legendary producer John Congleton (Sigur Ros, Phoebe Bridgers, Lana Del Ray) entered the fray. Together, they painstakingly crafted one of Boyd’s most captivating endeavors to date, solo or otherwise, ‘Echoes and Cocoons.’ The album’s initial singles, ‘Pocket Knife,’ ‘Petrichor,’ and “Dime In My Dryer,” are just a taste of the magic they have pulled from the ether.
