We have a new record from Jason Singh & The Banwasi Collective available to pre-order now! You can check out the first two singles from the upcoming record ’Travellers’ and pre-order on CD, LP, Limited edition Pink LP & digital TODAY!
Whatever he touches – whether that be composing for Sir David Attenborough’s Green Planet, creating immersive sound installations at Kew Gardens or vocally recreating birdsong and natural environments – sound artist and composer Jason Singh brings sensitivity, nuance and soul. With diverse collaborations that include George Ezra, Rokia Traore, Sarathy Korwar, Talvin Singh and Shabaka Hutchings, his work is an ongoing exploration of the natural world and music technology. Travellers, with The Banwasi Collective is Singh’s latest undertaking; an exciting project from an artist who we’ve come to expect anything but the ordinary.
Released on Hudson Records on 22 September, ‘Travellers’ is a collection of 8 tracks recorded and produced by Singh featuring a collective of master musicians and vocalists, most of them from the Manganiyar community of hereditary musicians based in Rajasthan, northeast India. The album embraces multiple genres, faiths and languages and pays homage to the natural environment of Rajasthan. ‘Travellers’ deeply inhales the landscape, stories, flora and fauna of this rich desert state, and exhales soul-searing songs of travel, love and longing.

HUDSON NEWS: DIRECT SUBSCRIPTION & DIGITAL DOWNLOADS!
We’ve had a busy old time here at Hudson Records over the last couple of months. We’ve had a big overhaul of the Hudson Club. We can now offer direct subscription to the Hudson Club, offering all the benefits of downloads and streaming of Bandcamp but within our club portal.
Don’t panic, our Bandcamp subscription is still available if this is your preferred platform but by subscribing directly, more of your money goes to Hudson Club, directly supporting our artists to continue to create and share new music and events. If you’ve previously had problems with subscription renewals on Bandcamp you can subscribe directly here
For those of you who are observant Hudson fans, you may have noticed we can now also offer direct digital downloads of our releases. We hope that by enabling direct downloads as an option we are giving you the chance to consume music in a way that suits our customers. Don’t forget, by buying directly from Hudson Records you are supporting us and our artists in the most efficient way. Buying direct makes a huge difference and enables us to keep releasing the music we love.
Last month we started 3 paid internships in conjunction with funding from Youth Music to work with us for the next year. As a label, this is an invaluable, hopefully mutually rewarding opportunity for us to share what we do with enthusiastic, creative young people who are looking to work in the industry and we simply can’t wait to get working together!
