New Music: Daniel Johnston, Is and Always Was

Wow! Is and Always Was, new music from acclaimed singer-songwriter Daniel Johnston. Made famous simply from a t-shirt worn by the great Kurt Cobain, Daniel Johnston has arisen from the ashes with a new release. Struggling from mental illness and possible demonic possession, Johnston’s career as a musician and artist has been quite a ride. His music was originally only spread by word of mouth and copied cassette tapes from his then diligent manager and friend. Eventually the world became a very ugly place for Daniel and he secluded himself from music. He moved on to become a somewhat successful artist in his own right selling drawings and his well known album art at galleries. Medications helped him to lead a healthy life again and it seems the music just won’t let him go.
