Acclaimed singer-songwriter Alice Phoebe Lou has announced the premiere of a brand new album on 2nd December 2021. “Child’s Play” is available now at all DSPs and streaming services.
Produced by Loving’s David Parry at his Dobro Genius studio in Victoria BC, “Child’s Play” includes the stunning first track “Underworld”. With its thumping rythm and electrical storm energy,”Underworld” stands among the South Africa-born, Berlin-based songstress’s most affective tracks thus far, an intense outpouring of feelings describing the alternate world one exists in with another person when the connection transcends words.
Hailed by Consequence for “her intriguing melding of genres like folk, jazz, and electronic and dance music”, Lou celebrates “Child’s Play” with a truly epic international live schedule. Additional North American dates begin February 16, 2022 at Chicago’s Evanston Space and continue through early March. For updates and additional information, please visit alicephoebelou.com
“Child’s Play” reunites Lou with producer David Parry, who previously traveled to her adopted hometown of Berlin to record this year’s acclaimed “Glow”. Lou’s dream to record at Parry’s Vancouver Island studio lived on and in time, she – along with best friends and longtime musical partners Ziv Yamin (drums, keyboards) and Dekel Adin (bass) – were able to secure permission from Global Affairs Canada and flew to Victoria. A two-week quarantine on beautiful Nanoose Bay allowed ample time to tie up loose ends before spending 10 days at Parry’s Dobro Genius studio. Working with the producer’s collection of analog gear and vintage instruments, Lou and her musical compatriots nurtured her recently composed songs into something altogether fresh, a natural evolution of sounds and vision from her previous work.
“The process was simple and intuitive”, Lou says, “using an 8-track tape machine and allowing the very new songs to grow into themselves. We worked tirelessly on a limited schedule to bring these personal songs to life, so used to each other by now from recording “Glow” together that even though the workload was immense, it felt easy and enjoyable, the four of us very much on the same page.”
