Record producer and electric bassist Dan Horne returns to his Lone Palm a.k.a. Liberty Hair Farm studio in Echo Park, Los Angeles for his debut full-length studio album, Count The Clouds, due out in April 2023; he released his solo debut EP, The Motorcycle Song, in November 2020. Recorded in 2020 - 2021 before his touring schedule kicked back into high gear with Circles Around the Sun and Grateful Shred, Horne is ready to unveil his latest musings as a solo artist to great effect. A flashback to mid-1960s psychedelic folk, multi-instrumentalist Horne is a tone-master vibin' out on all the guitars, drums, pedal steel, and keys on Count The Clouds. Tracks feature special guest artists such as singer Ny Oh from Harry Styles' band (on the track "Pieces"), among others.

A first taste of Count The Clouds is "Hedgehog's Song," a whimsical Horne cover of the hit British folk act Incredible String Band from their lauded album, The 5000 Spirits or the Layers of the Onion. Horne enlists keyboardist Frank LoCrasto for "Hedgehog's Song," a player known for collaborations with Fruit Bats, Greg Osby, and Pat Martino. The track eases into a companion dreamscape piece with epic solos and Horne's thick bass lines driving an epic jam on the original composition, "Hedgehog's Dream." Fans will be stoked to know this is just a sample of what's to come as Horne releases a series of singles leading up to the full album drop in April 2023; the double singles are released today, Friday, December 2, 2022.

Horne is gaining recognition on the Echo Park scene as a producer at Lone Palm a.k.a. Liberty Hair Farm working with artists Mapache, Cass McCombs, Chapin Sisters, Pacific Range, Allah-Las, and others. On the national live music circuit, he's a founding member of Circles Around the Sun, the Dead tribute band Grateful Shred (who's selling out venues all across the country), and a key player with bandleaders Jonathan Wilson, Ben Kweller, Beachwood Sparks, and Conor Oberst.
