Emiliana Torrini To Release New Album ‘Tookah’ On 9th September 2013 16 July 2013 in Emiliana Torrini
We are very excited to announce that on 9th September Emiliana Torrini will release her fourth album ‘Tookah’, the follow-up to 2008’s ‘Me And Armini’. It sees Emiliana back in the studio with her long-term producer / collaborator Dan Carey.
The first single to be taken from ‘Tookah’ is ‘Speed of Dark’, which you can listen to here:
Of the album Emiliana says:
“For me the first album was learning to write songs, the second was working on my own melodies and lyrics and the last album ‘Me and Armini’ was about learning to let go. With this record, it’s much more about the exploration of sonics and visual landscaping in order to find my own sound. I am a craftswoman and for me this record has been about Dan (Carey) and I evolving and going on a sound journey.
Emiliana’s charm is legendary around these parts, and not just because she once bought us one the of finest cakes we’ve ever seen, (and we’ve eaten some serious cakes) but for being one of the warmest, most effervescent and kindly people you could ever hope to meet. Though perhaps the most endearing thing about Emilinana is her ambitious approach to music that sees her producing feel-good summer time hits along side one-note murder ballads all with equal success. Her irresistible enthusiasm for life is evident on the song, Big Jumps, where she asks, ‘Are you afraid to break some bones?’ its playful music like this that prevents us all from dying of boredom. At the other end of her truly kalediscopic spectrum, Emiliana can create the kind of intimate and atmospheric songs that can whisper their way into your bloodstream and save you from loneliness.
