Tim Landers began developing songs for the new Cold Collective album before his untimely passing in 2019. The rest of the band got together to finish the songs in Tim’s honour. Some of the songs were left acoustic so that we could hear them in their original state.
The band are thrilled to finally be able to share these songs, and Tim’s talent, with us: “Words can’t express how excited we are to finally show you all this album that we started many years ago with our brother Tim. While the process was both technically and emotionally harder than any of us bargained for, we couldn’t be prouder of the results. Tim took a staggering number of songs with him when he left us. We present to you these 16, as selected by Tim’s nearest and dearest.”
Tim’s dad, Terry Landers, agrees: “Tim’s music is a gift. We love that more of his heart and work are being shared through this release.”
The new Cold Collective album, Weathervane, is available for pre-order now. All pre-sales include a $5 donation to Dean’s House, a sober living home in Massachusetts where Tim had stayed.
Here are the first two singles, Forever, For Nico and If You Could Be There.
Weathervane by Cold Collective is out on December 3, 2021, on Rise Records.
