Keaton Henson’s new album ‘Monument’ is a rare thing. It is an album about loss and dealing with losing the ones we love but told in incredibly candid detail through the aspects of our lives that surround the trauma itself, about love, ageing, recovery, life, seen through the prism of grief. It is an album, in essence, about death but in exploring that theme, becomes an album about life. It is singular in its vulnerability and an unmistakable artistic arrival for Keaton. An astonishing record by a singular talent. Having spent three years writing a complex and exhausting but thoroughly satisfying symphony (‘Six Lethargies’) which was both released and performed live last year, Keaton took a step back into the shadows to write.
