Matt Hannah’s third LP House of Illusion (March 30, 2022) examines the desire to carve out a space of illusion—a place of magic and art—protected from the world outside. A fan of film director Ingmar Bergman, Hannah has always felt drawn to the idea of drawing a “magical circle” around yourself to keep reality out and enchantments in.

A natural follow-up to Dreamland (2017), an “Americana fantasy” exploring how “dreams hold no allegiance to reality” (City Pages feature), House of Illusion explores the intimate spaces where that magical circle can endure—from a childhood bedroom, to a vintage guitar shop, to the last surviving flophouse on New York City’s Bowery.
