Dan Mangan Announces New Album, Shares Single ‘Just Fear’

More Or Less arrives November 2

Vancouver-based singer-songwriter Dan Mangan has announced plans to release his new record, More Or Less, on November 2 via Arts & Crafts. Mangan, whose track “Troubled Mind” is a sneaky song of the summer candidate, also unveiled a new single titled “Just Fear.”

More Or Less is about “witnessing birth, and in some ways rebirth,” says Dan Mangan in a release. “It’s about feeling disconnected from a popular identity and becoming acclimated to a new one. It’s about raising kids in a turbulent world. It’s about unanswerable questions and kindness and friendship and fear.”

Mangan wrote “Just Fear” shortly after his second son was born. “Trump had recently been elected and there was a lot of fear in the air,” says Mangan. “People were in denial because the lynchpin of western democratic society had been pulled. Truth was fluid. Reality was fluid. Still is. I needed a silver lining. Holding a newborn baby is a bit supernatural. It’s a slap in the face of the rat race.”
