Chris Russell returns to Aatma with a deeply personal response to the Covid-19 pandemic that has had such a powerful impact on our lives, our culture and the way we relate to each other. It's a challenging and heartfelt response to a time that no-one saw coming, and that we were all completely unprepared for. Chris had this to say about the album.

"Pandemonium was recorded during the lockdown and week-long quarantine during the pandemic of 2020. Having nowhere to go and lack of places to relax, I chose to go into the studio and work through what I was feeling during the scary and trying early months of 2020. During this unpleasant time I discovered a Reaktor Instrument called OMega 3 and soon improvisational sessions took place, strange and sometimes abrasive worlds started to develop. Creating this album was a form of therapy and I'd hoped this unpleasant time would be over at the time of this release. Although it is not over there is now light at the end of the tunnel and I believe our brightest days are ahead of us and not behind..

Be well and stay safe."

On Pandemonium, Chris has eloquently summed up all the fear, confusion and uncertainty the were so prevalent during those first few weeks of the pandemic. I'm grateful to Chris for sharing his experience, and proud to have this new work on Aatma.
