“Un-American Woman” by Dinner

Dinner, AKA: LA-based Danish producer Anders Rhedin, is back with his second full-length New Work, out September 8th via Captured Tracks. On the new album, Rhedin battled his own perfectionism by pushing himself to collaborate more, think less, and work at a high pace throughout a short and intense period of late-night recording sessions. New Work features collaborations with artists like Charlie Hilton of Blouse and Sean Nicholas Savage. Recently, Dinner shared the album’s first single “Un-American Woman”.

In writing “Un-American Woman” (and much of the album), Rhedin was inspired by William Blake’s Proverbs of Hell. “‘Un-American Woman’ is a song I wrote just before I stopped going out, just before I stopped sleeping around with women,” he says. “The song seems to be about disillusionment and a fear of being stuck in a certain lifestyle. But it also touches upon the potential transformational aspects of ‘bad things.’ Nothing’s black or white, good or bad. There is just lifeforce moving. A constant movement. ‘The road of excess leads to the palace of wisdom,’ in the words of Blake. I lifted that line for the song, of course.”
