Stateless is the sixth full-length release from Dirty Beaches,
the artistic identity of 33-year-old Taiwanese-Canadian
artist Alex Zhang Hungtai.
On the four-song album, Zhang Hungtai further explores
the instrumental side of his identity that has been present
since his first release in 2007 on Montreal label Fixture Records.
Of course, since then the artist crafted 2011’s breakout
record, Badlands, and its critically lauded followup
double-LP, Drifters / Love Is The Devil. He has also found
the time to compose film scores for Evan Prosofsky’s eerie
Waterpark short and Jeremy Lynch’s The Hippo.
Stateless is a reflection on Zhang Hungtai’s upbringing
in various locales (Taipei / Honolulu / Montreal) and the
past two years of living and drifting in Europe. The title
reflects several years of reflection on associated ideas like
Diaspora, borders and hybridism. A somber meditation
on memories from an exiled man on a never-ending search
for an imaginary homeland, Stateless puts the finishing
touches on a chapter of artistic activity that began when
the Badlands LP captured the imaginations of listeners the
world over.

Tracks:

1. Displaced
2. Stateless
3. Pacific Ocean
