Incubus frontman Brandon Boyd hasn’t released a solo album since he released his debut solo album, The Wild Trapeze, in 2010. That’s all about to change with the upcoming release of his latest solo album, In the meantime, Brandon Boyd just dropped “Petrichor,” the latest preview of his upcoming album ECHOES & COCOONS, which is set to release in February of next year. The album has been finished for six months but Boyd said he’s really taking his time on how he plans to roll it out.

In the meantime, Brandon Boyd just dropped “Petrichor,” the latest preview of his upcoming album.
Check it out below.

“Petrichor” addresses the idea of finding happiness after processing the darker side of life first. “Rain comes, senses fed,” Boyd sings. “Petrichor/ Wash away all your/ Pain/ From heart and head.”
In a statement, Boyd spoke about how rain in Southern California almost feels like being invited to embrace the darkness and emerge clean of any emotional baggage. “I come from a place in the world where the sun is almost always shining, and as wonderful as that is, it does carry with it a kind of bias towards happiness and a constant stress around well being,” he explained. “The irony, of course, is that it’ll drive you crazy trying to be happy all of the time.”

In November, he dropped the first single off of the album, “Pocketknife.”

Based off of these 2 singles, we’re pretty excited to hear this new album in its entirety.
The new material comes as a surprise since earlier this year Boyd said that the next solo he’ll release will be all covers. Guess he had a change of heart and hey, we’re not mad about it.
