London-based trio Daughter have announced the release of their new album Not To Disappear, almost 3 years after their debut If You Leave. The album is set for release on the 16th January 2016 via 4AD/Glassnote. The first single from the release, ‘Doing The Right Thing’, has been released online.
The band has worked with film-makers Iain Forsyth and Jane Pollard (directors of the Nick Cave film 20,000 Days on Earth) to create 3 films for the album, aiming to achieve a fresh approach to music videos. Author Stuart Evers was commissioned to write three short stories – ‘Dress’, ‘Window’ and ‘5,040’ – based on select tracks from the album. Forsyth and Pollard’s videos are interpretations of those tales. ‘Doing The Right Thing’ (based on the story ‘Dress’) is the first of the visual trilogy tackling the delicate subject of dementia and its debilitating, all-pervading effect on family.
The group spent the summer in New York working on the album with Nicolas Vernhes (Deerhunter, War On Drugs, Animal Collective) at his Rare Book Room studio in Greenpoint, Brooklyn.
Not To Disappear tracklist:
