Pat Metheny has unveiled the latest chapter in his prolific career – SIDE-EYE, a new setting featuring the 20-time GRAMMY winner accompanied by a handpicked and rotating cast of players featuring some of the most exciting and innovative new musicians on the New York scene. SIDE-EYE NYC will be released September 10 through BMG Modern Recordings. Recorded just before the pandemic, the album balances a mix of new originals with reworkings of some of Metheny’s most beloved compositions such as “Timeline,” which originally featured Metheny performing with fellow icons Michael Brecker and Elvin Jones. Listen to the single “It Starts When We Disappear” from SIDE-EYE NYC via the playlist below.
