After months and months of glimpses and teases which we’ve simply adored, Grammy-nominated producer ford. has finally delivered what fans have been begging for in the form of his long-awaited third full-length album, ‘Guiding Hand’ which is out now via ODESZA’s Foreign Family Collective and continues to see him push the boundaries and deliver delicious soundscapes that’ll leave you in awe.

‘Guiding Hand’ utilises a significant amount of influence across various genres to create a truly unique audio experience for all within its path. By combining elements of organic and electronically-fused instrumentation, ford. creates a carefully placed balance between elegance and liveliness and in doing so unearths some captivating grooves and off-kilter moments that leave you gobsmacked in their beauty.

“I feel so lucky to have had an older brother that exposed me to so much great music as a kid. Whether it was hearing him on his Yamaha DTxpress drum set a couple of rooms over or walking around during Fête de la musique and watching him play his djembe, he had such a real, innate love for music and always found ways to share it with others. I spent a lot of time thinking back on those years throughout the process of writing this record.
 
I really just wanted to be more intentional with the music this time around. A lot of it was me trying to get back to the idea of conveying emotion through just the music alone (hence the one feature) and being a little more purposeful and aware of where I was pulling inspiration from. It’s a cliché but I do think there is a lot of value in letting the music speak for itself and letting people connect to it in whatever way makes the most sense to them.”  – ford.
