Wonderful British songstress BETH ORTON releases
her 7th LP, baptized Weather Alive on 23 September.
This new shared piece off the album, called FRIDAY TONIGHT is an angelic beauty.
Orthon: “Friday Night” is someone reflecting on and trying to decide what to give up
or what to surrender to. Passion or ambivalence? Whether to “bleed or rust in the rain.”
Most of us are struggling to make sense of where to put the love we have for those that
are lost to us, let alone the ones that remain. Sometimes there is no right answer except
to find the wisdom in the spaces between the endings and beginnings, in the remembrance of things past or in search of lost time, there are always repercussions to the choices we make.”
Looking out for tonight…

Orton about the new, LP: “Through the writing of these songs and the making of this
music, I found my way back to the world around me — a way to reach nature and the people
I love and care about. This record is a sensory exploration that allowed for a connection to a consciousness that I was searching for. Through the resonance of sound and a beaten up old piano I bought in Camden Market while living in a city I had no intention of staying in, I found acceptance and a way of healing.”
Along with the announcement she shared the
beatific title track along with this appealing clip.
