Alessi and her Ark are back! Her 20o9 debut ‘Notes from a Treehouse’ was one of my favourite albums of that year and after having signed to Bella Union, her last EP Soul Proprietor was also stunning. I reviewed it here.
She is now back with a new album, ‘Time Travel’ which is due to be released on April 25th on Bella Union. The songs on this album she says have been inspired by travelling and touring away from family and friends. Since releasing her debut she has toured with the likes of Laura Marling, Villagers, and is set to take to the road with Mumford and Sons in the coming weeks.
‘The Wire’ which has been taken from her next album is now available as a free download. It shows a maturer approach to her songwriting than in previous songs but still has that lovely innocence and gorgeous Alessi voice. I cannot wait to here more. Download the song below.
