TUNE Emmy The Great - Somerset (I Can't Get Over)
Emmy The Great returns with her new EP ‘S’, released via Bella Union on 26th January.
Written during an itinerant period in Emmy’s life in Salt Lake City, Tokyo, Hong Kong, LA, New York and London, the new songs track the resulting personal changes and explore the rapidly advancing world around us. Where previous releases have been introspective, ‘S’ looks outwards. “My previous recordings were a reflection of my internal world, but this is a record of me trying to engage with the outside”.
Wild Beasts’ Tom Fleming joins Emmy on vocals for lead single ‘Swimming Pool’, with recording of the EP split between LA, (Ludwig Gorranssen - Haim, Childish Gambino) and London (Dave McCracken - Oh Land, Beyonce).
Emmy tours the UK in January, including Glasgow, King Tuts on 22nd, Manchester, The Deaf Institute on 23rd, London, Oslo on 27th and Brighton, Green Door Store on 28th.
