"Modern Anxiety" is the second studio album by Josef Salvat. It will be released after a four-year absence from the music industry.
In an interview for Gay Times, Josef Salvat says about this album "It’s coming next year, I’m just doing final touches on that. And sonically it is a mixed bag, as was my first one, I think. And I think that’s what I’m interested in. Thematically it deals with a lot of issues that I found really funny, and I tried to do it in a light way, because that was the only way I could do it. If I was too happy about all of it, not even when writing, but when I was thinking about it, I’d get stuck in this maze. But by trying to be light, and graceful in the way I dealt with stuff, and with compassion for myself and for other people which I’ve lacked in the past, but I feel like I have a lot more of that now. That’s kind of what’s gone into the writing process. And sonically I’ve been restrained. This whole album is open. I felt like I lived in a prison of my own making for eight years. I feel with the first album, I was so proud of that, but I feel this whole album is about connecting with people."
