    My new album, Weather Alive, will be released on September 23rd via Partisan Records. You can listen to the title track, watch the music video directed by Eliot Lee Hazel and Aron Alan Mitchell, and preorder the album here: Beth Orton - Weather Alive

    In the pauses, between the critical voices. In the empty hours when I wasn’t sure of much anymore I wrote some songs. I sat at a piano and I sang to the resonance. With the sensitivity and support of some beautiful collaborators I turned these songs for no one into songs that I hope will sing to many. I went deep and it might take a minute but keep listening and I hope what came to me finds its way to you. Love, Beth

    The title song:

    Alright. Will give her new stuff a listen. I liked the sugaring season album if that's right. She set a superhigh bar for me with the Central Reservation album. Which I listened to this month. Tremendous piece of work. Made my ;) Top 20 Greats list.

    Not bad, sounds like a Sugaring Season song. It's not something that bowls me over right away, unlike "1973" from the last record. But a new Beth Orton album is always a good thing.

    Was there an album after Sugaring Season? Sorry, I have a few of her albums post CR too and like them too to varying degrees. Wait, iirc 1973 is on Sugaring Season. Geez. Sorry for the fuss! Will revisit more of her catalog awaiting her new album!

    Yeah, Kidsticks, which includes "1973". A lot more electronic than Sugaring Season.

    Thanks. I had that on vinyl too. With Sugar and CR. I liked some of Kidsticks. I think I've actually heard almost all of her albums now that I think about it!

    I have some Sam Phillips catching up to do. I know she had started doing online releases from her site starting years ago and I've misseed some of them. Me and a friend were playing Omnipop and Boot and A Shoe. She has so many good songs. Her and Beth are two of my favorites.

    Saw Beth live in Boston while she was promoting Trailer Park back in the day; she was a revelation. Not "hearing" the title track of the new album yet, but I'll give it time; Beth said it would take a while to get into, so I'll take her at her word.

    I heard Superpinkymandy shortly after I got my own copy of Trailer Park; I thought her cover of John Martyn's "Don't Wanna Know About Evil" (produced by William Orbit) was brilliant. Still do, in fact...

    Trailer Park was a bit of an eye catcher for me, as she looked a lot like my g/f. Who is my wife of 26yrs now.

    (They are quite similar in a number of ways - same age, height, etc...)

    I have to try harder with that one. A lot of her fans think very highly of it and I haven't listened to it all that much or often.

    Have to listen very closely to the vocals on the new track. I like that instrumental section near the end of the song and the sound of the song. An interesting track. Creepy good. Sounds close to classic Beth Orton. Peaceful and comforting yet haunting and 'disturbing' - definitely got spooky. Spooky good.

    A terrific record! Something - I don't know what - prevents it from being re-issued.
