A new production of the 1987 album. The seeds of this new reimagining of the albums were first sown in 2008 when David asked Mario McNulty to remix the track ‘Time Will Crawl’ and record new drums by longtime Bowie drummer, Sterling Campbell along with strings. The track was issued on the iSelect compilation to much acclaim, and in the notes, for that record, David remarked ‘Oh, to redo the rest of that album’.
Fast-forward to early 2018 McNulty entered Electric Lady Studios in New York with Sterling, Tim Lefebvre on bass, who was in the ★ (“Blackstar") band and Reeves Gabrels and David Torn on guitars. All of the musicians had a history with David, so were a perfect fit for what now sound like brand new songs. Nico Muhly, whom Mario first met when they were both interns working for Philip Glass in 2001, has handled the string arrangements.

In 2017, Pinegrove moved into a rural farmhouse in upstate New York to make their new album Skylight, living, working and recording together. This DIY ethos solidifies Pinegrove’s position at the epicenter of a creative community, where they've adopted a “friends first policy” when cycling through the band’s touring iteration.
Skylight is “an album about happiness, figuring out how to be optimistic and realistic. To be effectively optimistic, you have to establish relationships with darkness and disappointment. The position of optimism is earned.” Hall’s “classic American melodies” and emotionally direct lyrics, blend seamlessly with alt-country instrumentation and experimental rhythms of drummer Zack Levine. The band are confident in their idiosyncrasy, dropping pop structures when they no longer fit. The songs swing between wider extremes – whisper to full-belt and back again, treading mid-air – and Pinegrove more exactly, more full-throatedly say what they’ve been trying to say.
