Ann Scott Releases New Single ‘River’ Ahead of Album Lily
“the constant speed, the burn out we all know too well from our modern existence,” says Scott “and how little things can accumulate all together into something bigger than ourselves.”
Her forthcoming studio offering, Lily, comprises eleven songs recorded over a mixed period of solitude and transformation, with recent history including re-location to the Irish countryside, giving birth for the first time, and now a year marked by lockdowns and social isolation. Not by co-incidence then, Lily is a largely solo and sparse affair, featuring just a handful of usual collaborators and includes themes ranging from motherhood and family, to dementia, loneliness, burnout and hope.
What some of the critics have to say
“An inventive, literate and poetic voice” —Tony Clayton Lea- Irish Times
“Not one of the highly hyped songwriters but definitely one of the most talented” – Dan Hegarty – 2FM
“A sublime, special collection. Rooted in dreamy melodies, Scott’s voice part Harriet Wheeler part Beth Orton is a rare beauty soaring on hot day and she jubilee and should deservedly gain her a lot of critical attention”. – Sinead Gleeson – U Magazine
