Album · 2014 · 10 Songs. While Ray LaMontagne’s music has long evoked warm memories of early-’70s singer/songwriter fare such as Cat Stevens and James Taylor laced with a true soul man’s wanderlust, the music rarely ventured into grander sonic adventures. With Supernova, LaMontagne is working a variety of approaches that show the sides of the man we all knew existed somewhere in his restless soul. It requires all 10 songs for the trip to conclude

Raymond Charles Jack "Ray" LaMontagne (/lɑːmɒnˈteɪn/; born June 18, 1973) is an American singer-songwriter and musician. LaMontagne has released seven studio albums, Trouble, Till the Sun Turns Black, Gossip in the Grain, God Willin' & the Creek Don't Rise, Supernova, Ouroboros and Part of the Light. He was born in New Hampshire and was inspired to create music after hearing an album by Stephen Stills.

With his impeccably weathered tenor croon and mastery of Seventies s, Ray LaMontagne can often seem in danger of disappearing into his beard. So it’s a blessing that he connected with producer Dan Auerbach for his fifth album. Predictably, Auerbach helps the singer pull bright colors from the Sixties’ crayon box; less predictably, he makes it seem a perfectly logical progression of LaMontagne’s 10-plus years of cozy vibes. On the title track, LaMontagne’s marble-mouthed phrasing comes wrapped in a dream of hand claps, organs, Mellotron and glockenspiel motifs.

Ray LaMontagne initially felt no pressure to swiftly produce a follow-up album to his 2010's Grammy winning set, God Willin' and the Creek Don't Rise. However the right songs were eluding him, so in 2012 the songwriter decided to seek help. He wrote to his friend Elvis Costello for advice. LaMontagne told American Songwriter magazine: "He's always been a sort of mentor to me. Overall, I was just going through this weird stage. Nothing was sounding interesting to me.
