about

Justin Carter never expected to be known as a DJ. Before the Mister Saturday Night resident had ever put a record on a turntable, his voice and pen were his outlets. As he's gone down the dance music path, his singing and writing have ticked along quietly in the background, a secret to most.

"Know It All", his first record, and the lead single from The Leaves Fall, his debut LP due on Mister Saturday Night Records on February 24th, 2017, brings that secret into the light.

Justin's vocals on "Know It All" are intimate but pointed, with hints of Arthur Russell and John Martyn. The foundation of the song is a pizzicato cello part from Archie Pelago's Cosmo D; reggae-tinted organ hiccups from Jason Lindner, the keyboardist on Bowie's final album, Blackstar, fill the space between. It all hangs together in a subtle mix by Benjamin Tierney, who also worked his magic on Kamasi Washington's The Epic.

The song is presented on the seven-inch in two versions. On the A side is the single, with a ghostly finish in which the instruments melt away around the vocals. On the B side, the cello stays solid to the end.
