Land of Talk Return with 'Life After Youth' LP, Share "Inner Lover"
Published Feb 28, 2017Elizabeth Powell's Land of Talk project returned to the live stage last year, performing new songs and hinting at more new material to come — and it's finally here.
Land of Talk will release a new album titled Life After Youth, marking the band's first full-length since 2010's Cloak and Cipher. It's due out on May 19 via Dine Alone Records in Canada and Saddle Creek everywhere else.
A press release notes that the new record hears the group drawing on influences like classical, ambient and Japanese tonkori music — the latter whose meditative qualities proved therapeutic to Powell's father during a recent recovery.
"These are the songs that got her through the tough times," a press release reads. "And now, they can do the same for you."
Ahead of the LP's arrival, Powell and her band have teased fans with a brand new track titled "Inner Lover."
According to Powell, the song is a declaration of self-determination, self-love, self-ownership. "It's about the freedom to live, and love as one chooses," she said in a statement.
Unexpected rhythms, echoing vocals and atmospheric instrumentation swirl together on the hypnotic offering, and you can fall under its spell down below.
You'll also find a slew of upcoming tour dates from the band, including Canadian stops in Winnipeg, Saskatoon, Edmonton, Calgary and Vancouver. See the full tour details below.
