More Info:

Happy Hearts is the first of what will prove to be many collaborations between hyper-prolific artists Jad Fair and Samuel Locke Ward. After connecting with one another during Fair's marathon 2021 effort to complete 100 albums in a calendar year, the two recorded one song each week, producing an eclectic array of tunes that moves from bubblegum synth to capricious noise rock. Tying this variety of moods and sound together is that most universal of themes: love. Through Fair's instantly recognizable voice and unique lyrical mind, Happy Hearts blushes with the joy of fresh romance and smolders with the warm glow of a long-term relationship. No weepy breakup anthems or ruminations on the ones that got away. This album is all donuts and bluebirds and celebrations and dreams come true. Or as Fair himself says, "Happy Hearts is a very positive album. It's good to stay positive.
