Deliverance (Lex Records)

Contact Patrick Tilley about Andrew Hung

Andrew Hung — known for his collaborative projects with Fuck Buttons and Beth Orton — presents his propulsive new single/video, “Find Out,” from his forthcoming new album, Deliverance, out August 11th on Lex Records. “Find Out” emerges from shrouds of synth-laden percussion, with Hung’s ever-emotive vocals guiding the track to cathartic climaxes. Following lead single, “Ocean Mouth,” “Find Out” soars along Hung’s electric trail of singles, mere glimpses of Deliverance’s anthemic heights. “This is a song about isolation, which is very different from solitude,” Hung says. “I’ve never really felt part of any particular tribe, yet I know it exists because belonging is a deeply-ingrained need. The name of my album Deliverance alludes to this; I have finally found my tribe and I am finally delivered. The repeating line ‘I’ve never found my way home, but maybe one day I will be home’ is an incredibly empowering and hopeful proclamation.


Deliverance follows Hung’s 2021 album, Devastations. On Deliverance, Hung continues his punk ethos by writing, performing, producing and mixing the album himself. He also painted the self-portrait that adorns the cover of the album; his face staring back at you amongst a maelstrom of burning light and whispering shadows. Water, dreams, and love are recurring themes throughout the album, with hope as the central tenet acting as a thread weaving everything together.


As part of Fuck Buttons, Hung has performed headline slots at festivals such as Glastonbury, Green Man, and All Tomorrow’s Parties, and contributed to music that soundtracked key moments in the 2012 London Olympics opening ceremony. He has continued his collaborative streak through writing and producing with Beth Orton on her career redefining album, Kidsticks, as well as contributing to Aimée Osbourne’s debut album, Vacare Adamaré (released under the name ARO). In addition, Hung has worked with cult director Jim Hosking to soundtrack his films The Greasy Strangler (winning best comedy at the Empire Awards), An Evening with Beverly Luff Linn, and Hoskin’s Adult Swim series Tropical Cop Tales. Following countless years of fruitful collaboration, Hung now turns his attention to delivering his own expression.


Deliverance’s subject matter spans conflict, change, and isolation, and it is Hung’s most sublime creation to date; a colossal statement given the extent of his past iconic work.
