Night Beds, the musical project of 26-year old Winston Yellen, is excited to unveil the highly anticipated sophomore album, Ivywild. The follow up to the much acclaimed 2013 debut, Country Sleep, Ivywild is a mesmerizing collection of melancholic, neon-tinged R&B.

The second Night Beds album draws on Yellen's original love of Bill Evans through to J Dilla and is made up of what Yellen calls "sad sex jams." It was inspired by a long-term love and a break-up which looms large throughout the album's veiled lyrics (See previously released track "Me Liquor and God"). Its genesis can be found in the stoned night in Nashville when Yellen first heard Yeezus.

Ivywild is a truly collaborative effort with a makeshift team of 25 musicians, notably Abe Yellen, younger brother and closest friend. Additional vocals come from Heather Hibbard, a singer from Maine who features on over half of the album, and was contacted by the gregarious Yellen through YouTube, after he found a video of her covering one of his songs. Setting himself up as curator as well as creator, the record shows off Yellen's natural flair for plucking people out of obscurity and bringing their talents to the table.
