"BUT THE REAL WAY OF THINGS IS OLD.. THE BOOT TO THE ANT, THE HURRICANE TO THE HUMMINGBIRD.. AND IT KNOWS NO OTHER WAY BUT FIRST."
"WHEN I WAKE UP? I WAKE UP DREAMING..."
Thea Gilmore makes the self-titled album that renews her vows to music - her first love.
Born, as planned, from the preceding EP's, the album was entirely written, played and produced by Thea. Thea Gilmore is absolutely the record she wanted to make. In many ways the record she had to make. Sustained by the very public dissection of her personal life laid bare on her last full-length release, the stunningly intimate Afterlight, Thea's hard-earned reputation as one of the most distinctive, strident and bold singer songwriters of her generation propels her to reach for new ground and this new release feels like a great leap forward into tomorrow.
"That's why this is my first self-titled album," she explains. "On my last album I changed by name to Afterlight and drew a line under everything I'd done up to that point. Not to invalidate it, but to put an end to the 'before'. It was a very inward-looking record that was rooted in the darkness of everything that happened to me up to 2019, whereas this album has its head up and is eyeing the world as a challenge.”
The album is released on 6th October and can be pre-ordered here.
