Daniel Johns has released his second solo album, FutureNever, via BMG. The record includes collaborations with Peking Duk, Moxie RaiaVan Dyke Parks and more.

Formerly of the band Silverchair, Johns isn't wanting listeners to draw comparisons to his work with the outfit.

“Don’t talk to me about this record not sounding like Silverchair. Every Silverchair record I wrote was criticized for not sounding enough like Silverchair,” Johns shares in a press release.

The Grammy- and Emmy-winning composer also spoke about the creation of FutureNever.

“As an artist, I find myself getting bored quickly,” he explains. “So with this album, I wanted to deliver an exciting record that feels like an adventure for the listener. I’ve stopped running from my past — I am here. I’m embracing it. In the FutureNever, there are subtle and not-so-subtle hints to some of the worlds and characters I’ve created over the years. FutureNever is me at my best and bravest. I want to share a world that invites repeat listens and encourages discussion and analysis.”
