"It's sort of a huge departure from a lot of what's been the chic thing, and the trendy way to make records right now" Houser told us last month. "There's a lot of people that are programming a lot of the instruments, and you hear a lot of snap tracks and all those things that are more sort of like hip hop music and pop. Some of it's just bad pop."

In addition to Magnolia, Houser recently announced that he and his wife Tatiana Houser are expecting their first child. "2019 just keeps getting better. Man it has been hard to keep this secret because we are SO EXCITED. We’re Pregnant!!!" he wrote on Instagram last month. "BABY HOUSER IS COMING IN JUNE!"
