On his 2011 debut Will The Guns Come Out, Hanni El Khatib tried something hed never tried beforemaking a bedroom-style recording of his then stripped-to-the-skeleton guitar-and-drums rock n roll mostly for the sheer joy of making it. For his ferocious 2013 follow-up Head In The Dirt, he tried something new again, showing up at producer Dan Auerbachs analog-dreamland Nashville studio with nothing but the clothes on his back and an open mind.

But after Dirts release and almost a year of relentless touring, Hanni knew he needed to go past unpredictable all the way to unprecedented. He needed isolation, time and the chance to experiment. So after 30 days locked in hand-picked L.A. studio the Lair, the result is the album Moonlightthe rarest and most welcome kind of album, made at that perfect point in life where confidence, experience, and technique unite to help an artist do anything they want.
