For Forever Turned Around, the band “grapple with the anxiety and acceptance that time is limited and navigate questions of mortality, doubt, love, and friendship. It’s an album about partnership — romantic, familial and communal, but most importantly a love in friendship: the bonds between two best friends and creative partners and the joy and stress that comes with it,” according to the press release.
The LP was co-produced by Brad Cook and Jonathan Rado. Ehrlich and Kakacek reunited with original rhythm guitarist Ziyad Asrar, plus Chicago musicians Lia Kohl and OHMME’s Macie Stewart to provide strings.
