The 11-track effort may be the first release under his own name, but Haynie has been a fixture in the pop realm since the early 2000s. He’s produced albums and singles for Kanye West, Eminem, Bruno Mars, and Ghostface Killah, among others.
Following a breakup last year, Haynie holed up in the Chateau Marmont for six months to record his own album. He enlisted the help of some A-list friends, including Lana Del Rey, Lykke Li, Randy Newman, and Father John Misty.
“I made the album with mostly my friends, who knew what I was going through,” Haynie says in a press release. “I wanted to put the relationship under a microscope, and relive all my emotions, from being pissed off and hurt to a sense of relief.
