White Hinterland

Freedom often begins from terror, and White Hinterland's third album, Baby, addresses the fear that comes along with breaking out of established rituals, or leaving a comfortable place, and striking out into the unknown. Four years after her profile-raising release, Kairos (2010), Casey Dienel aka White Hinterland has taken the gloves off and knuckled down to produce a deep, dark, heady mix of songs. After two and a half years of writing and recording material in Montreal and Portland, OR, Dienel moved back in to her family home in Scituate, MA. There she forged a new aesthetic, spending five months building her own studio, The Glades, in her parents' basement - the same space where she practiced piano and vocal lessons as a child. Determined to helm her new album, Dienel spent months studying production, poring over YouTube tutorials about Protools, mic'ing techniques and other minutiae. Armed with this self-taught skill and her new studio, Dienel set forth to subvert the existing power structure of male producer as svengali and female artist as figurehead (see: Billy Corgan/Courtney Love, Timbaland/Aaliyah, Phil Spector/The Ronettes). She created her own, new path on Baby, which showcases her as a singer/songwriter/producer who has only become bolder and more resolute over the past three-plus years. Calling in her friends as pinch hitters, Dienel worked acclaimed musicians Sean Carey (Bon Iver, S. Carey), Neal Morgan (Joanna Newsom, Bill Callahan), and Cole Kamen-Green (Beyoncé).

WATCH // White Hinterland Shares New “Baby” Video, On Tour Now With S. Carey

Today VEVO premiered the new cinematic video for title track “Baby” off the new White Hinterland album. Directed by Anna Rose Holmerthe video was shot in Casey’s hometown in southeastern Massachusetts. Watch the video above or here on Casey’s YouTube channel.

Casey writes, “I was drawn to Anna’s treatment because she puts a lot of heart into her work, and ‘Baby’ feels like the most raw and delicate of all the songs on the album … whatever we did had to be especially personal. I wanted us to shoot it in my hometown because I think it’s beautiful here. It feels like a visual love letter to the Scituate that I grew up in.”

Get the new album Baby via iTunes, SC Distribution, Amazon, and your local record store.

ALBUM RELEASE // White Hinterland ‘Baby’ Out Now, Tour With S. Carey Starts This Week, European Dates In May




It has been four years since Kairos came out in 2010, and now Casey Dienel aka White Hinterland‘s newest album Baby is out now worldwide.

Recorded in a self-built studio inside her old family home in Scituate, MA, Casey removes herself from the sprawling atmospheric production of Kairos and hones her sound with focused, confident production and a present narrative. Baby is about facing your fears and making the most out of your situation, being bold and pushing forward past opposition. On the new record Casey says “the themes of this record to me are personal agency, strength, growth, determination…and to get those things is usually fucking terrifying and comes with casualties and loss.” Joining Casey on the new record includes acclaimed artists Sean Carey (Bon Iver, S. Carey), Neal Morgan (Joanna Newsom, Bill Callahan), and Cole Kamen-Green (BeyoncĂ©).

Critics praise the new album:

“Dienel’s considerable vocal skills hold it all together, [her] vocal acrobatics stay riveting”

- Rolling Stone

“bask in the irrepressible Venusian energy of one of the finest female artists in modern pop music”

- musicOMH

Get the new album Baby via iTunes, SC Distribution, Amazon, and your local record store.
