Mondays are sad, we get it. Keaton Henson seems to get it too. Already a well established graphic artist, the story goes that the soft-spoken singer-songwriter picked up a guitar to mend his broken heart a few years ago, and earlier this year, Henson released his beautifully heartbreaking Birthdays. A collection of songs both somber and bitter, Birthdays spans anywhere from intimate moments ("You," "Teach Me") to bombastic, angst-filled ones ("Don't Swim," "Kronos"). For a taste of Keaton Henson, below is a three song session he recorded with NPR earlier this year. If a tear comes to surface or sadness wells up inside, don't say we didn't warn you.
