The day after tomorrow, my new album 'Thaw' will be released!
The last track to be previewed before the release is 'Ebb and Flow'!
Once again it features Julie Frey on vocals and Anders Frey on guitar.
'Ebb and Flow' does not take place in Greenland, but in the bay of Kangiqsujuaq in the far north of Canada. The story was too good not to include, though. In the coldest of winter, every two week the moon’s pull is so strong that the fjord drains underneath the ice. The ice then sits directly on the floor of the bay, and the locals climb down underneath the ice to collect blue mussels. They have to be quick and alert, because the tide returns fast.
Only one week to go before 'Thaw' is released!
Over at Bandcamp you can now stream yet another track:
Today, Heather Hill's album 'Dark Silent Place' has been released!
The songs are written and sung by Julie Frey, who is also contributing to my new record, 'Thaw', which will be released next Friday.
Dark Silent Place is produced by Anders Frey, who also appears on 'Thaw'.
In addition, you can hear me on bass, mandolin and hand percussion on 'Dark Silent Place', which I've also mastered, by the way!
Give it a listen!
If you can't wait for the new album 'THAW' to be released september 27th 2019, here's one of the songs called 'Alone Into Eternity'.
In the years 1906 to 1908 a succesful scientific expedition to the northeastern Greenland took place. One of the goals was to explore the last blank spaces on the map, and for this purpose three men went by dogsled to the Independence Fjord drawing a map as they went. Their way back was made difficult by an unusually warm spring rendering travel on the sea ice impossible. Only one of the men was found the following spring, and in his diary they found a death letter hinting the fate of the other two and written just before he laid himself to rest. This song is about dying alone in the freezing polar night.
